    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Dec 30, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    Leave the success of your life to a power greater than you. Just do the things you were anointed for. Let a power greater than you take care of the ‘how.’

    True religion is not acting good but doing good.

    ACTING GOOD …OR GOOD ACTIONS? Our passage in Isaiah seems contradictory at first… the prophet is told to tell the people they are in rebellion and sin even though it says “day after day they seek God out and seem eager to know his ways”! But God says they are a nation who more
