Tonight’s At-home bible devotion lesson is specifically focused on how what we believe is so important. It is my hope that you will SEE a connection between the “wind” and “doctrine”. No. This is not an an exhaustive study. But I do believe this study can begin the process of opening your eyes to see the tricks of the enemy, and the kinds of blessings you can miss out on. This study has been designed so that those who believe in God’s word must truly hunger for His word to receive. Jesus said in Matthew 5:6, Blessed are those who do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled. Tonight is for the hungry and the thirsty. And if that’s you, grab your Bible, notepad and pen now. And join us as a faith community, as we pray, read and respond to the questions below. Let’s discover together. Are you ready? Let’s us pray.
Heavenly Father, We thank You for Your Word. We ask that You bless us tonight, that we all might be anchored in Jesus Christ. This we ask in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
