Her request for repayment seemed reasonable and credi...

His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 2 Peter 1:3

Demons thrive in chaos, but God brings a steady, secure equilibrium to the lives of people in covenant with Him through Jesus Christ. Old sailing ships often carried lead to provide ballast. God provides the ballast for our lives--moral excellence, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godli...
