It is essential that we keep the Word of the Lord hidden in our heart. Every day we face one temptation or another.  We also face adversity and we need to know beyond a shadow of a doubt the power of the Word. If we do not grab hold of His Word, we will succumb…

I believe that every believer ought to know the danger of pride. We cannot afford to be arrogant or haughty for these characteristics will cause us to fall.
