SIT-WALK-STAND
Take a STAND
HEB 4:12
The word of God is alive and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and the spirit, of the joints and marrow, and is a critic of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
You and you alone are
the only one who can live your life… especially your spiritual life… no one else can live it for you.

I will make myself like the Most High.’
