    based on 5 ratings
     | 2,991 views

    As a child of God, we have much to be thankful about.

    Intro. The lack of thankfulness is the greatest problem of most of our lives. If we were thankful, we would live differently. Psalms 92:1 "It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:" The Hebrew word is one that is a synonym of a ...read more

  • When You Fail To Trust God

    Contributed by Norris Harris I on Jun 24, 2007
    based on 79 ratings
     | 20,873 views

    This message deals with the consequences of our failure to trust God based on the experience of Jacob. Be Blessed!

The basis for that conclusion is grounded on the fact that here was a man, who with his mother, had conspired, schemed and tricked both his father and brother out of the ...read more
