    V. 11 - Something the Lord finally got thru to me about this verse is: if we have His spirit living in us, that before we witness scripture to anyone, if we will pray about it FIRST - then He will bless it even more so. But - His spirit in us is needed for Him to hear prayer for His word to others - Jn. 9:31. God hears the prayer of one truly seeking Him in repentance, Acts 2:38.
  • Brianna vs. 11
    In a world filled with political lies, it brings comfort to know that the true sovereign of the universe will act on his promises. Any word that comes from Jehovah God's mouth will have results. We don't have to fear God's words because he always makes laws that benefit us. He loves us and will never hurt us. We must put our trust in the only true ruler: Jehovah.

    Ephesians 4:4-6
    There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

    One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

    One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

    Verse 7 shows how abundant God's forgiveness is. As long as one is truly repentant and they leave their bad course behind then they can be sure that God will forgive them.
