Asleep On Delilah’s Lap, Evans Olang

Judges 16:19, “Then she lulled him to sleep on her knees, and called for a man and had him shave off the seven locks of his head. Then she began to torment him, and his strength left him”

The enemy has a mission to put believers to sleep and I believe he has been successful in so many levels. The lost are asleep in the dark (sin), believers are asleep in the light.

My Redeemer Lives, By Evans Olang

Job 19:25, “For I know that my Redeemer lives; And He shall stand at the last on the earth”

We need to be aware of is that as we walk with God we are reminded that He owes us nothing.

God owes you nothing, as a matter of fact, you owe it all to Him. Continue reading “My Redeemer Lives, By Evans Olang”
