    Finding God's Will

    When you make a decision, how do you know you are choosing to do the right thing? In this message, Dr. Stanley explains why we have trouble discerning God’s will and how sin affects our ability to walk in the path He has chosen for us. He also encourages us to discover the Lord’s will through reading the Word of God, praying faithfully, trusting our heavenly Father’s sovereignty over our circumstances, and listening to the wise counsel of others.

  5. Good Job Kingskid!!

    (i should have read further!)


    I still haven't found where Judah died
     
  6. Hi Strypes,

    You did a fabulous job yourself! This is how we learn things we may not know
    and it's fun!

    In answer to your question, Exodus 1:6 just states that Joseph and his
    brothers (Judah being one of them) died. It doesn't really say how. If
    it says it somewhere else specifically, I'm not aware of it.

    Keep up the good work, sister. You're doing great!:love:
