  1. You know, this is really an amazing study that the Lord has walked you through. I’ve returned to it several times since first reading it, and find it to be quite interesting. Different aspects have stood out to me each time I’ve read it. But one thing stands out overall. God tells us very clearly how to live, and if we receive his instruction and live it out, he is faithful to provide all that he has promised. I see that in your life, and it makes me want to press in to him more. Not just to get his promises, but to please him so much that he would want to pour out every good thing in my life. Not for the good things, but for his heart to be in that stature towards me. He’s a good God.
