"Plead my cause , O Lord, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me." Psalm 35:1
Do you believe that God goes before you and interacts with others on your behalf? If not, you are missing out on one of God's wonderful gifts to you; the gift of assisting in the management of your affairs so that the results are not solely based upon your own actions. If life was life without the personal intervention of a personal God, there would be no life at all. Man would have annihilated themselves far before now. You are not the creator of your own destiny as so many proclaim. You are co-creator and be thankful for that. Can you imagine what you are capable of if not for the check of the Holy Spirit?
