    Vs. 13 14 are my best: I'm Loving it, because we give up too quickly and do not WAIT for God to act on our behalf. God's deliverance on our behalf comes with our listening and obeying Him. This way we do not have to fight for ourselves. I need to remember this daily.

  • Freddy alukwe for verse 10
    Mouth is used for eating natural food, to me mouth it is a very important organ, can eat both natural and spiritual food, it is from the mouth we confess ROM 10 9,And receive spiritual birth BORN AGAIN THE MAIN PURPOSE FOR MOUTH IS TO COMMUNE WITH GOD THE MAKER,WHY? Man shall not leave by bread a lone,natural bread is good for health, but the other bread, the word of GOD is more important when eaten it ends in eternal life, natural bread we know its waste product. All these two process of eating begin with from THE MOUTH, spiritual BY confession and natural by chewing. One day JESUS surprised the crowd of about 5000 men minus women and children not counted, He multiplied five loaves of bread and two fish, they ate until were left overs. The following day they searched for Jesus, they found Him. Jesus knew exactly what they wanted, He confronted them by telling them, "i know its because of the bread that you ate that 's why you are looking for me ", then he changed the message to himself being the bread of LIFE, his blood and body BREAD OF LIFE HE SPEAKS LIFE and this can be eaten by opening the mouth in an act of accepting, confessing AMEN OR YES LORD WHAT HE SAYS, immediately the mouth opens to utter AMEN OR YES LORD it goes direct to the heart and faith begins. psalm 81 10b OPEN YOUR MOUTH WIDE AND THE LORD SHALL FILL YOU
