Divine Connection

 

Summary

God wants to fulfill His word in our lives as we connect with Jesus.  This happens as we hear God's word and believe because God's word has the power to transform our lives.  Yet, simply reading scriptures does not mean we will hear His voice,  we need to be in prayer and asking the Lord to speak to us.  Heroes of faith all started out as nobodys, but they heard God's word and it transformed their lives.  God will transform us as we hear His voice.
