A car needs gasoline to run. Our bodies need water to run. Think of our bodies as a well oiled machine and without the oil it would rust! So, water your body and it will be like a well oiled machine.
Take care of yourself, because you are the only one who cares about who you are, except God.
God created you and He cares. Friends are ” fickle” and if things go wrong, they are out the door. God is your FOREVER friend who will never leave you nor forsake you. (Deuteronomy 31:7) He LOVES you with an everlasting love. (Jeremiah 31:3)
God is a Spirit who lives inside you as the Holy Spirit of God and Jesus.
God is the Triune (three in one ) God: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.
God is Faithful when we are Faithless.
He is waiting for us to spend time with Him in fellowship, that’s why we were created.
We leave to follow our own agendas and He is waiting for us to return to Him as The Father waited for the prodigal son. (Luke 15:11-32)
We are like the prodigal sons and daughters when we choose to live our own way. God is patiently waiting on us to return to Him. He does not condemn, instead He convicts our Spirits and let’s us know that something isn’t right when we have done wrong. God loves us completely.
The enemy of our soul, the devil is the one who condemns. He is the one who came to kill, steal and destroy. (John 10:10)
The enemy can’t have us once we are born again/recreated in the likeness of God (John 3:7.) The enemy condemns us and tells us all sorts of lies, because he is the ” father of lies” (John 8:44)
The enemy knows he can’t and won’t win so he wants to steal our peace that passes all understanding. (Philippians 4:7)
He can’t steal our peace if we don’t let him.
Speak God’s Words from the Bible to him and he can’t win, because he knows that God’s Word is alive and sharper than any two edged sword. The enemy also knows that his days are numbered. He tempted Jesus in the desert and spoke the Word to Jesus, but Jesus spoke The Word back to Him the right way, not twisted like the devil tried to do.
Jesus won then and He won Victory on the Cross, our Salvation and our healing.
Jesus is Victor and not victim, which makes us Victors and not victims.
We are saved by The Blood of The Lamb, KING JESUS !
He is coming back to rule the earth for a thousand years and we get to rule with Him. (Revelation 20:4-6)
The enemy will be locked up in hell those thousand years and then will be released for a short time. Then we will all, who are saved, be with God and Jesus and The Holy Spirit for all of Eternity.
There will be a new earth, a new Jerusalem.
Hallelujah, Come Soon, Lord JESUS !

In this four week mini Bible Study you will examine your faith and what it means to have faith in God. When we believe in God we then learn to walk in faith and trust God. But first we must believe, and it’s up to us, we can either choose to believe in Him or not. But faith will mean nothing until we believe with all our heart that God is who He says He is.
5 STAR AMAZON REVIEW: “I really enjoyed this mini study. I like when things make you think and journal and you can focus on one aspect at a time. It was a great study.”
