Spend time getting to know God

In the word of God, the Bible, in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 it says we should pray without ceasing, meaning pray regularly.

In John 10:17 it says, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them and they follow me.”

This clearly indicates that God chose His sheep and they believe and follow Him.

The Bible tells us that if there isn’t anyone or anything in all creation should separate us from God love.

Prayer is the key to getting our love and understanding of who God is in the spirit. Praying is the way of talking to Him.

We call Him by His name, that is Jesus Christ. The name that is above all names.

The book of 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sins, and heal their land.”

His name is Jesus Christ, not Christmas or Xmas. If we call on that name, we’ll receive his promises.

Step back and let God take control.

His love is real, His promise is true, and when we give Him our hearts you know He will see you through.

So when the road you’re traveling on seems difficult at best, just remember I’m praying, and God will do the rest.

The truth come only from through the word of God. The Bible. Read for yourself.
