King David wrote, “The unfolding of Your Words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple” (Psalm 119:130, NIV). I am always so excited when the Lord shines His light on a scripture verse or passage. He always brings a fresh, revealing truth sure to shake me from my mundane thinking. Hebrews 4:12a says, “The Word of God is living and active…” (NIV). If you want to know God better, there is no better way than becoming daily acquainted with His Word.

It is my prayer that they will motivate you to read and discover for yourself how wonderful our Father is!

It is, in fact, the one thing that still stands when all else…
When Satan uses the support tool of abandonment, he encourages you to take matters into your own hands. He uses the tool of pride!
After Satan has tempted you with dissatisfaction which led to disconnection, true to his nature; he abandons you.
The second tool Satan uses is disconnection. Satan desires to separate and isolate you first and foremost from God.
Satan knows that if he can divide us, he can conquer us! The first tool Satan uses to cause division is dissatisfaction. Satan uses dissatisfaction as a way to lure us away from others and magnify discontent.
There is a school of thought promoting the theory that inborn generational circumstances are passed down without discrimination. However, God’s Word teaches something vastly different.
Forgiveness from God is the ultimate act of God’s love for us. Jesus does not look on the outward appearance, position or wealth of a man, or even what he has done to qualify him for forgiveness. Scripture reveals that “All have sinned and fallen short.”, (Romans 3:23.)
