God’s Wondrous Deeds–My Proclamation 

Psalms 40:5
You have multiplied, O LORD my God,

your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us;

none can compare with you!

I will proclaim and tell of them,

yet they are more than can be told.

As this verse proclaims the wondrous deeds of our God, as well as His thoughts toward us, it also says, He has multiplied His deeds and thoughts. WOW!!
 The Written Word of God, the Scriptures, our Bible, tells us that God loves each of us so much, that even though we were each born in sin, having a sin nature, He, God, sent His Son, our Lord Jesus to earth to die on a cross so we are able to have a relationship with Him.
Romans 3:23-24 (ESV)
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 

24 and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus

Romans 6:23 (ESV)
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

John 3:16 (BBE)
For God had such love for the world that he gave his only Son, so that whoever has faith in him may not come to destruction but have eternal life.

Since the first part of this verse (Psalm 40:5) tells of what God has done for me, (for each of us), it is up to us, (me) to proclaim what God has done.
As with everyone who may see this, as well as all who do not see it, I was born with a sin nature, although I did have the blessing of being born to parents who were Born Again Christians, loving and serving our Lord Jesus Christ. This blessing included taking me to Sunday School and church during childhood years, where I heard the Truth of the Good News of Jesus Christ. While young, eight years of age, I accepted Jesus as Saviour, repenting of my sins, and living for Him. At the age of twelve, I was immersed in water baptism, testifying of my surrender to Jesus Christ, and had a deep calling on my life to serve my Lord Jesus.
During the teen years, through bad choices, listening to secular teacher’s counsel, although I admit the poor choices were all mine, I wandered from my lifestyle and following of Jesus Christ. Even though I knew I was wrong, I started skipping church to hang out, and go to car races, etc, with friends on Sundays.
I gave more attention to sports, participating as well as spectating, than I did to Jesus, so sports basically became a “god” because that is where my time and money went.

In God’s Faithfulness though, He never released and let go of me, and His Spirit continued to protect me from even more, and worse, bad choices. During the years of wandering in the darkness, away from the Light of the world, a number of friends started to use drugs. That is one thing that never enticed me, praise Jesus, as His Spirit kept me free from any attempt. When I saw the results of drug use, in some of those friends, it was frightening, as well as a learning experience. 
There were a number of years then where I spent a great deal of time doing things on my own mind such as roller skating often, attending sporting events as a spectator, when I was not working.

Fast forward a few years until I met Barb, who is now my wife of 46 plus years as of this writing. Barb was not a Christian when we met, while bowling, but after a couple years of dating / engagement, we were married. When our son was born, a couple years following our wedding, the Holy Spirit again began to work on me. He didn’t bring heavy conviction on me, but nudged me that even if I didn’t want to serve Jesus at that time, I should give our son an opportunity to know the teaching of the Bible.
That seemed fair, so we decided to start attending a church that I knew of. From the knowledge I had of that church, I would not be too convicted by attending,

On the first Sunday we attended, we entered the back door of the church, off the parking lot, like most persons did, but the entrance I had was different I am sure from the majority there on that or any other Sunday.
Barely inside the door, and Holy Spirit met me again, in a different way. This time, being within the building, where there were a number of Born Again Christ Followers, I was actually within the “Church”. For any who may not understand this, the building where we meet to worship Jesus Christ, and hear our Pastor preach the Word of God, is not “The Church”. We Christ Followers, Born Again Christians, the Body of Christ are “ THE CHURCH”.

Acts 20:28 “And now beware! Be sure that you feed and shepherd God’s flock—his church, purchased with his blood—for the Holy Spirit is holding you responsible as overseers.
1 Corinthians 12:27-28 Now here is what I am trying to say: All of you together are the one body of Christ, and each one of you is a separate and necessary part of it. Here is a list of some of the parts he has placed in his Church, which is his body: Apostles, Prophets—those who preach God’s Word, Teachers, Those who do miracles, Those who have the gift of healing; Those who can help others, Those who can get others to work together, Those who speak in languages they have never learned.
In Acts 20:28 we read that God’s flock–His church, was purchased with the Blood of Christ. 
1 Corinthians 12:27-28 tells us that His Body is His Church.
So, the church of Christ is much more than a building where we may meet, we are the Body of Christ.
Therefore, when we walked into the building where Christ Followers were gathered, it was because the Believers were there that we entered the “Church”.
As mentioned, the Holy Spirit met me in a powerful way. I could sense His Presence, His Empowering, His Desire and Plan for me, even though at that time it was a short time plan. His desire, planted in my spirit and mind, immediately became my desire, and that was to read, study, meditate, on the Word of God. He gave me a hunger for God’s Word that has not left.

Along with that hunger for the Word of God, Holy Spirit gave me a desire to tell others of Jesus, His Love for us being so great that He willingly died for us, in our place as the penalty for our sins, and that He rose from the dead so we can have eternal life.

We only need to admit we are sinners, repent, ask forgiveness of sin, and ask Jesus Christ to be our Saviour.

Holy Spirit also increased a passion I had to help others in the community who were struggling with life issues, such as depression, substance use and abuse.

During this time of growth in my Christian life, Barb also came to Salvation in Christ, through 100 Huntley Street Ministry.
It wasn’t too long after all this, I attended a meeting, hearing of the Fullness of Holy Spirit being another progressive step in a walk with Christ, so went forward for the first time in my life, got prayed for, receiving the Baptism of the Spirit, knowing the empowering He gives. It was a brief time later that the Gift of Tongues prayer language was given by Holy Spirit.
During the past number of years, Barb and I have been involved in a diverse variety of ministries, including but not limited to, prayer, intercession, deliverance, healing, mentoring, Bible studies, meeting and street Ministry to disenfranchised, homeless, and substance abusers; drop in Centre volunteers.
Fast forward again to 2012. After being hit by an illness, in March 2012, with a variety of symptoms that didn’t fit any one thing in particular, through a totally unrelated regular test, it was discovered in October I had colon cancer. 
Upon this discovery, the specialist rushed things through and surgery was completed Oct. 23/12. Surgery was totally successful, with all cancer being removed, and still cancer free five years later. 

Praise Jesus for His hand being on all things, and thankful to the Doctor for the God given wisdom he had and used to perform the surgery, and remove all cancer.

But, the surgery did not relieve all the pain that was being experienced. There was still tremendous pain throughout my body, with a more extreme pain on my left leg from knee to ankle. All reports were that there was arthritis all through my body.
Medications were taken for relief of the pain and arthritis, with extra meds being taken as needed for the pain in the left leg, usually 5-6 times per day.

All was going well for a few years, except I was finding I couldn’t do as much as before, but I finally had to agree to the age factor slipping in. The mind and body each had ideas of what could be done, and would argue. The mind would attempt, but the body would usually win.
A short fast forward now to Feb. 12, 2017. A normal Sunday late afternoon, sitting on the chair, going to enjoy a piece of homemade cake, I ended up dropping the plate and cake on the floor shortly after Barb handed it to me. Not bad enough wasting the cake, but the reason for the drop, was that I had a stroke.
The immediate signs were that I could not speak, every sound was just garbled. There was no controlled use, or strength on my right side. My right arm would fly up in the air uncontrollably, and I would have to reach up with my left arm to pull it down to my lap.

I knew all that was going on around me, but I could not do anything. Barb called 9-1-1 immediately, and fire personnel were there shortly, followed by ambulance personnel.

When then asked questions, I knew the correct answer, but only garble came from my soundtrack.

After some oxygen, and some testing / monitoring, I was rushed to hospital, lights flashing and siren blaring.

The med team was waiting, and ran me to another room for a test, and then to use the “clot buster”.

It worked well. But the ER experience was even more humorous than the experience at home. My right arm was still flying up uncontrollably. But I was starting to be able to speak–a bit.

When I was asked questions, I knew the answers, and I could basically see the answers in my mind, but I could not say what I wanted.

An example: I was asked when I was born, in my mind I could see 1945, out of my mouth came 1826. I even heard what I said, I knew it was wrong, but could not control it. It continued to give everyone a few laughs in a tense situation anyway, with the flying arm, and the flying answers.

While in ER, besides Barb, our son Brad, and daughter Sarah were there, as well as our Lead Pastor, Chris, and Care Pastor, Sharon. With those prayers and many other friends, and church family praying, all medical team were guided well in all decisions .
Over the next few days in hospital, everything in my system returned to normal.
The therapists who were doing the tests said they had never seen a similar recovery. 

Our family Doctor tested me on a regular visit that had been pre scheduled, and her comments were “You are a walking miracle”.

One question I did have for the Doctor, was regarding that intense pain I had felt in my left leg for years. Since the stroke it was no longer there. I asked if it could have been a blood clot there, causing the stroke, then it broke up and moved out. She said that was not a possibility, giving me the medical reasons for it. She told me to ask the neurologist, and she was going to write and ask him also.

When the appointment for the neurologist came, I did ask, and he also said it was not possible for that to be the reason. He told me that our Doctor had written and asked also. He did not have an answer for it, so I thanked Jesus again, and told the Doctor the Lord must have touched me then.
Today, I saw our family Doctor again my for a renewal of another prescription, and we got to talking about the stroke and the leg pain again also. She asked if I needed those meds renewed, and I told her I still have the almost full container. She mentioned she had been in contact with the neurologist, and he said “I don’t know “, and she again said, “I still don’t know, you had a miracle for sure”.
I have just written this now, to share the Goodness of our God, His Faithfulness, His wondrous deeds. No one can compare with our God.
As the Psalmist, King David penned these words I started with, and will also end with, I felt I needed to proclaim some of the things God has done in my life. No one can compare with Him.
Glory to God, Praise His Holy Name!!!! HALLELUJAH!!!!
Psalms 40:5
You have multiplied, O LORD my God,

your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us;

none can compare with you!

I will proclaim and tell of them,

Another Call To Prayer For Our Canadian Government

This is another post calling Christ Followers to pray for our Government of Canada specifically, and seriously.
Our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has caused a law to be passed, effective July 2018, that marijuana will be legal in this country. This means legal to grow, sell, use.

It will be possible for individuals to grow enough for personal use. It will be possible for anyone to apply for a business permit to grow and sell it. The individual provinces were given the task of doing all the preparatory work prior to the date of legalization.

What is meant by “preparatory work”, is licensing those who will be able to grow and sell, setting parameters for where these retail establishments can be set up, setting the age limit for purchase and use, setting the point of impairment such as there is for alcohol, and also finding how to test drivers who may be suspected of impaired driving from use of drugs, or combination of alcohol and drugs.
That is quite a challenge for each province, along with all the regular challenging work these bodies have. The provinces did ask the Prime Minister to extend the legalization date to give them more time, but he was vehemently against it.

I again have the question raised in my mind, wondering if this decision has anything to do with the scheduled election in 2019, since one of his pre-election promises before the previous election, was to legalize marijuana.
When our Prime Minister has been out for photo ops with EMS workers, or apparently showing interest when the opioid epidemic is mentioned, I wonder how much thought he actually does give to the number of overdoses and deaths in the past two years.
I wonder, when he thinks of upcoming elections, that some whom he is counting on to vote for him may no longer be around to vote, following a possible overdose.

Does he realize that not one of these persons who uses, or abuses illegal drugs started out using them, with a plan stating “I choose, or I desire to become addicted to a drug, then having a need to get money through illegal means to keep my habit going.” 

While speaking with a number of people over a period of years, who have been substance abusers, none of them started with the harder drugs. Every person spoken to began the journey they were currently on by smoking some joints of marijuana.
Has our Prime Minister had serious, caring conversations with any drug abusers?
Does our Prime Minister think of the EMS workers who are at the accident scenes, needing to care for and help the injured? Does he think of the police officers who go and knock on the doors of homes, to tell people a family member was just injured, or deceased in an accident caused by a person with impaired judgement due to alcohol or drugs? In our region over the past couple of years, there have been a few major accidents causing death to innocent people, including 3-4 children, while the impaired driver was not injured at all.
My prayer is for our Prime Minister to give more and deeper consideration to ideas he puts forth. I pray that his cabinet and caucus would have the fortitude to stand up to him, giving their thoughts, and making their thoughts known to the general public, so we know where they stand on the issues. I also pray for the opposition members to stand, and continue to fight ideas such as this.
Again I mention that Scripture tells us to pray for our leaders. We can pray for a softening of hearts, an openness of the spirit of each Member of Parliament, so each will hear the nudging of the Spirit of God, even if they do not know who He is, and they will make their judgements and decisions to benefit the whole of the population of this great country of Canada.
Christ Followers in Canada, let’s kneel together in prayer, calling upon our God to change the hearts and minds of our politicians.
God Bless!

Prayer for Canadian Politicians

We in Canada, particularly In Ontario, need to be in constant fervent prayer for our politicians, our great country, our province. The Prime Minister of Canada, and the Premier Of Ontario, each lead their respective Liberal parties.These political parties do appear to be very liberal in their beliefs and actions. Both parties are in favour of aborting babies, regardless of the stage of pregnancy the mother is in. 

These leaders do not admit the truth that it is a baby growing within the mother’s womb.

We also read where our Prime Minister will not support the nomination of any prospective Liberal MP who is anti-abortion. This appears very much like a dictatorial stance, particularly when he also states that he has made it clear that future candidates need to understand they will be expected to vote pro-choice on any bills.
With all that said and done, any medical doctor true to their profession, calling, and oath, will realize that the baby in the mother’s womb is a living being, and not something that is worthless, and can be thrown out like trash.

Following the newspaper reports below, are true facts and statistics regarding the development of the human life within the mother’s womb. 

Discarding that life is murder of a human being, a human being who will never be allowed to develop and grow, fulfilling the potential in the life that would be ahead of them, if he or she was not murdered before he or she even had any opportunity to work towards a goal.
Last Updated Wednesday, May 7, 2014 8:03PM E

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau stated in no uncertain terms that he will not support the nomination of any prospective Liberal MPs who are anti-abortion, saying Wednesday, “It is not for any government to legislate what a woman chooses to do with her body.”

Speaking to reporters, Trudeau said would-be Liberal candidates who are anti-abortion will be flagged and barred during the nomination process.

“I have made it clear that future candidates need to be completely understanding that they will be expected to vote pro-choice on any bills,” he said.

In Canada, however, approximately 15% of abortions occur after the first trimester. The Canadian Institute of Health Information (CIHI) reports that 12.7% of abortions occur at 13 weeks or later, and 2.4% of abortions occur after 20 weeks, including when the baby would be viable outside the womb. This accounts for about 12,500 pre-born children per year, with up to 2,500 of those being aborted after 20 weeks, based on the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada’s estimate of 104,158 total abortions annually in Canada.

Facts and Statistics of The Living Being Within The Womb
First Trimester: The Baby at 4 Weeks

Development of embryo at approximately 4-6 weeks.

At 4 weeks, your baby is developing:
The nervous system (brain and spinal cord) has begun to form.

The heart begins to form.

Arm and leg buds begin to develop.
First Trimester: The Baby at 8 Weeks

An eight week old human embryo.

At 8 weeks, the embryo begins to develop into a fetus:

All major organs have begun to form.
The baby’s heart begins to beat.

The arms and legs grow longer.

Fingers and toes have begun to form.

Sex organs begin to form.

The face begins to develop features.

The umbilical cord is clearly visible.

At the end of 8 weeks, your baby is a fetus, and is nearly 1 inch long, weighing less than ⅛ of an ounce.
First Trimester: The Baby at 12 Weeks
Human fetus in utero at twelve weeks.

The end of the first trimester is at about week 12, at this point in your baby’s development:
The nerves and muscles begin to work together. Your baby can make a fist.

The external sex organs show if your baby is a boy or girl.

Eyelids close to protect the developing eyes. They will not open again until week 28.

Head growth has slowed, and your baby is about 3 inches long, and weighs almost an ounce.
Second Trimester: The Baby at 16 Weeks

The human fetus at about four months showing the head and upper limbs and the umbilical cord which connects the fetus (at the navel) to the placenta.

As your body changes in the second trimester, your baby continues to develop:
The musculoskeletal system continues to form.

Skin begins to form and is nearly translucent.

Meconium develops in your baby’s intestinal tract. This will be your baby’s first bowel movement.

Your baby begins sucking motions with the mouth (sucking reflex).

Your baby is about 4 to 5 inches long and weighs almost 3 ounces.

Second Trimester: The Baby at 20 Weeks
Human fetus near his fifth month of development.

At about 20 weeks in the second trimester, your baby continues to develop:

Your baby is more active. You might feel movement or kicking.
Your baby is covered by fine, feathery hair called lanugo and a waxy protective coating called vernix.

Eyebrows, eyelashes, fingernails, and toenails have formed. Your baby can even scratch itself.

Your baby can hear and swallow.

Now halfway through your pregnancy, your baby is about 6 inches long and weighs about 9 ounces.

Second Trimester: The Baby at 24 Weeks
Human fetus at approximately 24 weeks showing details of his closed eyes, nose, mouth, and facial hair.

By 24 weeks, even more changes occur for your growing baby:

The baby’s bone marrow begins to make blood cells.
Taste buds form on your baby’s tongue.

Footprints and fingerprints have formed.

Hair begins to grow on your baby’s head.

The lungs are formed, but do not yet work.

Your baby has a regular sleep cycle.

If your baby is a boy, his testicles begin to descend into the scrotum. If your baby is a girl, her uterus and ovaries are in place, and a lifetime supply of eggs has formed in the ovaries.

Your baby stores fat and weighs about 1½ pounds, and is 12 inches long.
Third Trimester is from week 29-40 (birth)

At 32 weeks in the third trimester, your baby’s development continues:
Your baby’s bones are soft but fully formed.
Movements and kicking increase.

The eyes can open and close.

Lungs are not fully formed, but practice “breathing” movements occur.

Your baby’s body begins to store vital minerals, such as iron and calcium.

Lanugo (fine hair) begins to fall off.

Your baby is gaining about ½ pound a week, weighs about 4 to 4½ pounds, and is about 15 to 17 inches long.
Third Trimester: The Baby at 36 Weeks

Human fetus in utero at approximately 36 weeks.

At 36 weeks, as your due date approaches, your baby continues development:
The protective waxy coating (vernix) thickens.

Body fat increases.

Your baby is getting bigger and has less space to move around. Movements are less forceful, but you will still feel them.

Your baby is about 16 to 19 inches long and weighs about 6 to 6½ pounds.
Third Trimester: The Baby at 37 to 40 Weeks

A mom looks at her newborn child.

Finally, from 37 to 40 weeks the last stages of your baby’s development occur:

By the end of 37 weeks, your baby is considered full term.
Your baby’s organs are capable of functioning on their own.

As you near your due date, your baby may turn into a head-down position for birth.

Average birth weight is between 6 pounds, 2 ounces to 9 pounds, 2 ounces and average length is 19 to 21 inches long. Most full-term babies fall within these ranges, but healthy babies come in many different weights and sizes.

Above From—2005-2017 WebMD, LLC.
With all this medical proof, it is probably safe to say that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau never viewed any ultrasound of his wife’s pregnancies when she was carrying their children.
Perhaps political votes are more important than the lives of those unborn who will never have the opportunity to vote.
A reminder again, our politicians need our prayers. This country needs to return to serving the True Triune God.

Job 42:4-6

4 ‘Hear, and I will speak;

I will question you, and you make it known to me.’

5 I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear,

but now my eye sees you;

6 therefore I despise myself,

and repent in dust and ashes.”
Job knew of God, and it appeared earlier that he did know God, but Job’s own words at this point make it clear that Job did not really know God and have a relationship with Him.
Job declares that his eye sees God at this point. Of course Job does not mean that he saw the face of God. He means he now saw the Presence of God in his Spiritual eyes. Earlier Job had “seen” the works and power of God, in the literal sense, but now he was seeing God Spiritually, and in the place to repent of his ways, and truly know God personally.

Do we truly know God, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the forever reigning King of kings and Lord of lords?
As we look around us, we see His marvellous creation, including ourselves, but do we know Christ, the Creator?

As we listen to, and sing praise and worship songs, do we actually know the Saviour, whom we say we adore?

On the days in between the days we meet for corporate worship, and to hear the Word of God proclaimed by our Pastors, do our lives exhibit that we have “seen” the Christ, and know Him?

Do our words and actions to family, friends, neighbours, co-workers, strangers, differ from others who have not answered the call of the Holy Spirit of God, and met with our Redeemer?

Do the books we read, TV programs watched, entertainment enjoyed, conversations we have, draw us closer to our Saviour, or do these activities put a film over our eyes so we don’t see Jesus clearly?

When Job realized that He finally did “see” God with his Spiritual eyes, he knew he had to repent and turn his life around, and follow all the ways of God. Job knew he was wrong, as he had been looking at his own ways, so Scripture says Job despised himself.
We need to look to Jesus Christ, and look at ourselves honestly. When we “see” Jesus Christ, as He really is, the true God, Perfect man, Perfect God, wholly man, wholly God, we will see ourselves in God’s Light, as He sees us, and the Spirit of Jesus, who is the Spirit of God, will convict us of any sin we have been holding onto, or thinking we are hiding, and will lead us to repentance.
The end is getting near. We need to take all these truths that Scripture shows us, seriously.
God’s Blessings

My Redeemer Lives

Job 19:25-2725 For I know that my Redeemer lives,

and at the last he will stand upon the earth.

26 And after my skin has been thus destroyed,

yet in my flesh I shall see God,

27 whom I shall see for myself,

and my eyes shall behold, and not another.

My heart faints within me!
What a Glorious day that will be, for all who know Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, when we meet Him face to face.

We do know that He lives, and when these bodies of flesh wear out, or Jesus returns in the clouds for His redeemed, we shall see Him for ourselves. Every eye will focus on Jesus, the Christ, King of Glory. What a day that will be. Scripture tells us there will be no more tears in Heaven, but I do believe when we see the King of kings, Lord of lords, return in the clouds, there will be tears of joy shed.

Many who have not surrendered to Jesus, the Christ, the Messiah, may be shedding tears of sorrow at that time. 

It will be too late then to call out to Jesus for forgiveness of our sins, and receive Him as Saviour, but there is still opportunity right now, at this time. Please consider doing this now.

God’s Blessings!

There Is One True God

“Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: “I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god.”‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭44:6‬ ‭ESV‬‬
These were God’s words spoken many years ago. These words of God are as True, Powerful, Effective today as they were when the Prophet Isaiah was led by the Spirit of God to record them.

Regardless of what any man on this earth does or says, whether he is a King, President, Prime Minister, Dictator, or any so called leader, God is still God.
God is our Creator, the Creator of this universe, as well as every other universe. It is God who gives us each breath we breathe, and it is God who makes our heart beat.

As well as being our Creator, God is our Sustainer. He provides the sun and the rain. He originally provided the plants from which seeds are continually gotten so crops can be grown and harvested each year.

When we all messed our lives up with sin, God our Heavenly Father, provided the sacrifice for our sin, by giving His Only Begotten Son, Jesus the Christ, to come to earth from the Glories of Heaven, to die on a cross, in payment for my sin, your sin, everyone’s sin, if we will only admit we are sinners, repent and ask forgiveness.
Not only did Jesus the Christ die on that cross, after three days He was resurrected by the Spirit of God, and seen by many for forty days before returning to His Heavenly Home, to sit at His Father’s right hand.

No matter what man, nor woman, may say, and no matter what someone may serve as a god, there is ONE TRUE GOD. 
The God I, and many others serve, as well as being the Creator of all good things, is our Saviour because of the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus, the Christ.
The Bible, the Holy Word of God, tells us that Jesus is our Redeemer also. He is our Sanctifier, guiding, directing, strengthening us to become more like Jesus, and Glorify God.

Jesus is our Baptizer into the family of God, and by His Spirit, to grow closer to Jesus, and have Victory in this life.

Jesus is also our Healer, touching people in various ways to restore health, emotions, challenges of many kinds. Beyond our understanding, not everyone gets healed on this earth of all things, but we know that after this life on earth ends, all who have surrendered to Jesus, will have a perfect body when He takes us to our Heavenly Home the Bible promises.

Walking In The Fear Of The Lord

Proverbs 23:17Let not your heart envy sinners,

but continue in the fear of the Lord all the day.
When we see people who are not Christ Followers, apparently getting ahead in their world, with things, “toys”,
big houses and vehicles, taking exotic trips to various places in the world, the enemy of our soul will often attempt to play games in our mind.

He will say things like, “If you didn’t give so much money to help others, and to your church, you could do that too.” OR

“You deserve to do, or to have, these extra things in life.”

OR “if you extend the truth of your expense account a bit, it is not wrong or bad, everyone does it, it is expected.”

or there are a variety of ways he attempts to coerce us to follow his ways.

When we serve God, living our lives to worship Him, honour Him, according to His Word, we will have true LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, UNDERSTANDING, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS, SELF-CONTROL.
As well, we have the secure knowledge of spending Eternity with our CREATOR, REDEEMER, SAVIOUR, LORD, HEALER, JESUS CHRIST. HALLELUJAH!!!!
