Without a true fear (not deep respect or reverence but fear) of the Lord we will never have the wisdom to even begin to understand His grace, mercy and love.
God does not bless our lives because of our goodness but because of His grace.

However, God tells us that our fight is not against flesh… so we have an option… we can go it alone and let these people crush us, breakContinue reading “Difficult People”
