the measure of faith.)

WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE LORD IS
MY STRENGTH AND TO TAKE ACTION
BECAUSE I KNOW GOD?

against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people
that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. )

SATAN VICTORY IN MY LIFE WHEN

GOD AND GOD GIVES WISDOM TO ME GENEROUSLY
WHEN I ASK HIM FOR IT?

who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness,
and sanctification, and redemption:
James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God,
that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not;
and it shall be given him. )

9. WHY SHOULD I BE DEPRESSED

COMPASSION AND FAITHFULNESS
AND HAVE HOPE?

THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS?

hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.)

which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.)

WHEN JESUS SAID HE IS WITH ME ALWAYS AND
HE WILL NEVER LEAVE ME OR FORSAKE ME ?

I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the
end of the world. Amen.

and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said,
I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. )

14 WHY SHOULD I FEEL ACCURSED OR VICTIMIZED
WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS THAT CHRIST REDEEMED
ME FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW THAT
I MIGHT RECEIVE HIS SPIRIT?
(Galatians 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law,
being made a curse for us: for it is written,
Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the
Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the
promise of the Spirit through faith.)

15 WHY SHOULD I BE DISCONTENT
WHEN I, LIKE PAUL, CAN LEARN TO BE
CONTENT IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES?
(Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned,
in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.)

WHEN CHRIST BECAME SIN ON MY BEHALF
THAT I MIGHT BECOME THE
RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM?
