The wise way to begin the day is to lift your voice to God in prayer; lay your requests before Him. Set out before Him the things you are going to have to do that day. Commit to Him the problems, the difficulties you anticipate, and then, like King David, you will be able to wait in expectation (Psalm 5:3). You won’t be worried, fearful. You will be expecting the answers to those prayers that you committed to God, in the morning.”

The Son of God:
Yahuwah Elohim [the Hebrew name for the LORD God], Who is the Living, Eternal God, the Creator of all things, and Who can do whatever His pleases, came to this earth, born into this world through a virgin birth. He did this to communicate His character, His nature, His power, His purpose, and His plans. Only Yahushua Messiah [Jesus Christ] alone, could have accomplished this mission, because . . . He was not an ordinary man!
