John American Standard Bible (NASB) 16 You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you.
NIV version: "The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights." Habakkuk Lord God is my strength, my bravery. He will walk me through places of trouble and suffering ~ Habakkuk
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock. (Isaiah ESV) such a truth, so grateful that in this crazy messy world GOD is my PEACE!
"I have been crucified with Christ." I have already taken my death & am living the Eternal Life KNOWING Father GOD & Jesus! There will be no separation from this place---my FAITH is in The BLOOD of Jesus Christ, alone!
I need to remember this. "In your anger do not sin. Do no give the devil a foothold. Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up" -Ephesians
