  • I believe the Word of God has the anointing (ability) to speak to people. We read the Word and expound on it but the true Word of God is what speaks to our Spirit and tells us what to do and what not to do. It’s the answer to our needs and advice from our Savior, so I want to share God’s Word with you:

     

    Psalm 91, In God we trust,

    1.                  He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
