Are you relying upon your own works or upon the supernatural power, strength, and mercy of God?

God is never dependent upon what we can do for Him; but man is dependent upon God and what His Son ...

Man’s “tongue potential” is for both blessing and cursing things of God.

Do you believe in all you hear and see in this world?

The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going. (Proverbs 14:15 KJV)

It has been said many times and many ways that a fool believes everything he hears.  Those who are discerning or sensitive to what they hear and read test it and break it down according to truth; not the truth according to the world but the Truth of God’s Word.

Have you tasted of God’s righteousness finding it spiritually delicious?

For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. (2 Peter 2:21-22 KJV)

Peter is speaking in ...

God will never forsake His own spiritual family.

But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. Thy children shall make haste; thy destroyers and they that made ...
