Have you ever wanted to hear from God? Wise counsel from the Creator & Savior would sure be nice during the tough times. Well, He has spoken to you. And He wrote His Word down in a Book.

One of the cross-references I am using is 2 Corinthians 3:17-18, Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
