This is how we have come to know love: He laid down his life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 1 John 3:16 CSB
22 I am utterly convinced that animals can talk except that since the Fall of humankind into sin, the Lord has closed their mouths to speak (the serpent was able to speak until the Fall). Balaam’s donkey spoke when the Lord opened her mouth and Balaam answered her without even seeming surprised in this conversation. The donkey saw the angel and Balaam did not, until the Lord opened his eyes. The Lord had to open the mouth and eyes for the donkey to talk and Balaam to see.
23 12 He answered, “Shouldn’t I say exactly what the Lord puts in my mouth?”
I also, must only speak the message the Lord puts in my mouth.
19 God is not a man, that he might lie, or a son of man, that he might change his mind. Does he speak and not act, or promise and not fulfill?
God is completely for Israel and ANYONE who rises against her is beyond foolish!
2 All a person’s ways seem right to him, but the Lord weighs motives.
25 There is a way that seems right to a person,
but its end is the way to death.
GOOD THING TO DO OR THE GOD THING TO DO? I encourage everyone to take this class for your benefit!
As I seek my God for the plans He has for me, everything fits together perfectly and smoothly. I am grateful, my God who loves me exceedingly determines my steps. Those who truly want a relationship with the Lord really want to hear truth. Again, humility impresses God and it is not something I can just put on as it truly has to come from my heart and right relationship with the Lord.

Thank You Lord for my gray hair!
32 Patience is better than power, and controlling one’s emotions, than capturing a city.
