“I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord! - Psalm 27:13-14Have you ever noticed how most of the things that you want badly require you to wait to get them?

“Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.” - Proverbs 14:29 When it comes to trusting God, we must learn to be patient.

God’s Promises Are Sure
by Ministry Support on September 25th, 2021
“For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding ‘Yes!’ And through Christ, our ‘Amen’ ascends to God for his glory.” - 2 Corinthians 1:20The Bible says that God is not a man that should lie. If He spoke it, He will bring it to pass. One reason so many people give up on God in the waiting process is because they do not live as if God is certainly going to do what He said ...
