    Proverbs 15:23 contrasts verse 4 above! Especially these days, let us encourage one another as the day draws near! Thanks for the insights!

    Doesn't matter how anointed you are if the Word of God the Word of Faith is Christ Jesus doesn't abide in you if you dont know the fundamental of faith we have to excersie our faith by been a doer of the Word of GOD not just a hearer only. Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    "...their fish stinketh because there is no water, and dieth of thirst." v. 2

    When we have no the Word of God in our heart, we become stinking. The word cleanses our life to remove every filthiness. "Sanctify them through thy word". When the Holy Spirit abandon us, we die of thirst for the promise of God is to make our belly rivers of living water which signify the Holy Spirit.

    Help me O Lord!

    that time above and 2018; individually or nationally, by their own power /doing, they did it to themselves'; and when Almighty Mercy / their Deliverer offered the help theses sinners needed, as they /we are drowning in their own sin; the Deliverer (whom love these sinners so dearly) cry-out to them "... let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God". Thank GOD for HIS MERCY! WOW!
  • John 4/14/2017
    GOD promised to fight for us but we must be WILLING to be OBEDIENT to is word, We often time CHOOSE to sin WHICH CAUSES.our own problem. By trying to help OURSELVES we step out of the will of GOD. But if we trust GOD then wait on the LORD,and Be of good courage, he shall strengthen thine heart. Wait I say on the LORD
