Are we looking to God or trying to do it on our own? 3 points. Prayer -- Matthew 5:24 "...pray for those who persecute you." Matthew 14:23 "After He had sent the crowds away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone." Luke 18:1 "...at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart," God's Word -- Psalm 119:105 "Your Word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path." Read His Word on how to live your life." His Word shows us what to do and what not to do. Matthew 4:4, John 8:31 Read his Word and apply it to your life. Faith -- Psalm 126:6 "...Who keeps faith forever;" Faith is not in what you see. We cannot see our Savior. Through his death and resurrection is our salvation. Matthew 9:2
