God wants us to trust Him. Everything in the Bible is from the Most High. It's from His heart and wisdom. When Jesus speaks to us through the Word of God, it's always pure, lovely and full of praises. It's all about Jesus.
When we have problems, we just give it to God and replace it with the Living Word of God. There are scriptures that every problems we have. When the Devil lies to us, or does things that harm us, we can boldly come to God for His wisdom and pure love.

Jesus is the One who keeps my marriage strong, my relationship with my daughters peacefully, and as a humble servant of the Lord. As a pastor, I rely on the Word of God and the Holy Spirit who is my Comforter and Teacher. When I think of Jesus, God deserves all my praises because He's the Almighty, the Aleph and Tav. He's the Lord of Lords and King of Kings!
So if we have problems or just want to ponder on something, open our Bibles and find Jesus! When we find Jesus, our hearts overflow with the Love of Christ and there is no limit on how much love receive from the Most High Jehovah!
