1 Thessalonians 5:21-23 (KJV)
21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
John 8:31,32 (KJV)
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
What is contained in the Bible, is the Word of God. God speaks through every word. Believe in Jesus and you shall find truth.

Galatians 5:22-26 (KJV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
Live unto God and not unto the flesh. Don't let your sins take control of your life but let the Lord give you freedom.
The Book of Mormon claims that if we lived before the birth of Jesus, we can be forgiven by the blood of Jesus. This is contrary to the Bible. Continue Reading
Daily Prayer:Lord, keep our eyes opened. Let us not be given over to any wind of doctrine. If people try to bring in other books of scripture, let us be ready to challenge it, instead of readily accepting it. From the examination of the Book of Mormon, I know that there are millions of people being led astray, in the Mormon Church. I pray for them at this hour of need. They have surely been blinded with the addition of their books. The Holy Spirit testifies of what is true and what is a lie. Thank You for showing me the way. I am grateful that you took me from this false religion. Sure, I was pained inside, for having lived it all my life but the alternative was better. To be safe within Your arms is better than false security. It may seem hard to believe that I followed this religion for so long but I know Lord that You weren't the reason. Satan had a strong hold on me, like he has on everyone in that church. Lord, break their chains, this day. If they want to know You and be free, open their eyes also to the truth. Thank You for saving me. I love You. Amen.
Listen to how David came to the Lord for assistance, “I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints.” Continue Reading
Psalm 85:7,8 (KJV)
7 Shew us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation.
8 I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, thank You for Your mercy. Thank You for coming into my life and giving me a new heart. I was so defiant in my old ways but You have changed me. Instead of resisting to follow You, I only want to serve You. My desires have been flipped upside down because of Your great love for me. I know that You are my Savior. I also know that Your wrath is real. I felt this anger while I was in sin. I knew that I was not in good standing with You. After much confession of my sins, my thoughts have finally changed. Through repentance, my life has turned from darkness and into Your light. It is no longer guilt I feel but love. Your mercy has saved me. Thank You for the cross. Thank You for saving us through Your blood. I am not able to be righteous on my own but Your holiness allows me to be. I am grateful for the peace You have brought into my life. I rejoice in Your goodness. I love You Lord. Amen.
I can't believe it is 2018. This new year, my goal is to allow the Lord to lead me in all things. His commands are my delight.
Psalm 84:11,12 (KJV)
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
12 O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
If you are a true Christian than there will not be prolonged, unrepentant sin in your life. There is no faith, if this is the case.
David taught that those that love God “go from strength to strength”. They may have been shy in certain areas but God gives them boldness. Continue Reading
Daily Prayer:Lord, I love Your ways. I love Your commandments and how they have changed me. Your counsels are better than good. They are awesome. I am ecstatic when You give me wisdom. Your words in the Bible are more than words. They speak to my heart and help me know how to live. I was once lost and never had hope for tomorrow. Now that You are in my life, hope is everywhere I can see. My eyes have truly been opened. This hope leads me to do greater things than I ever thought were possible. Because of the boldness You put in my heart, I am stronger. My weaknesses are now my strengths for You lead me. How honorable are Your ways, oh Lord. My soul cries out in praises because of Your presence in my life. I rejoice for Your great love and affection towards me. I can feel Your mercy and grace. You sustain me. It is the Holy Spirit that helps me showcase this same love towards others. May I never forget to display this gift of love. Lead me and direct my path. I need You in my life. I am truly happy when You are there. I love You. Amen.
