                                                           God was with Him   What was the secret to Jesus’ ministry on earth?       God was not doing things for Jesus or in His ministry,       … just because of who He was,       but because Jesus was walking with Him,       …God could do things in Jesus’ life.

                                                                    … in Him!   If you know your authority, … you have authority, not because the Bible says so, … but because it is real to you.

(Luke.11:2-4) His instruction was … ‘pray that God’s will be done!’ … and although we have ‘God’s Will’ – the Bible, we still don’t seem to know what God’s will for our lives for today is!
