  • Proverbs 16:9, "The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps."  - Matt

  • Job loved God and he was very prosperous, but he lost everything.  Although he went through loss, death, sickness, he said “the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away”.  Our faith cannot be built on things, but on God.  When we seek the Lord and all of His righteousness, all of His blessings shall be given to us.  We must learn to trust and depend on God’s goodness.  Stay strong, be courageous, wait on God, keep the faith.  God sought you first, now you must seek after Him who your soul loveth.  Be blessed!  - Vanessa

  • I just was lead to read your Bible study.  I have to say it's a very powerful Psalm.  My favorite is Psalm 119:114.  "You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in Your word."  Praise the Lord and thanks for the encouragement.  - Cheryl Ann
