    Friday (2-13-16) Morning,

    This is regards to the study this morning.

    Wait on the Lord to answer your prayers. Don’t rush into making decisions without the counsel of the Lord; or as you stated ” The Mind Of The Lord. And when I say go to the Lord in prayer ask God where HE would have you to go or not to go, say or not to say. Wait on God’s response and study Gods Word. Pray without ceasing. Seek counsel and encouragement from your pastor, and those you attend church with. Help each other.

    Prov. 3:5-6
    Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not to thine own understanding.
    In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he will direct thy paths.
