  • HARRY ALLISON for verse 16
    stay in JESUS`S WILL,keep seeking after HIS wishes....
  • Are you kidding? That is the Word of God. He doesn't lie! This woman/habitation of devils almost killed me and high jacked my daughter for 12 years of occultic hell. I wished I had obeyed my instinct to put her down. But God prevailed, and I had to blow my engine (nervous breakdown) to stifle what the word says are brute beasts needling to be destroyed! May You always prevail Lord, this is a spiritual battle...pls party for Shannon and Kaelynn! GB
