Sundays Bible quote
"Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh,
is there anything too hard for Me." —Jeremiah 32:27
He Is Merciful
By Billy Graham
Who is a God like unto thee ... he delighteth in mercy. —Micah 7:18
Many people want to hear what God says just out of curiosity. They want to analyze and dissect it in their own test tubes. To these people, God may remain the great cosmic silence "out there somewhere." He communicates to those who are willing to hear and receive Him, and willing to obey Him.
