    Hi guys , so recently I want to get closer to God. I am trying to read an understand the Bible , I really want to be a follower of Jesus and understand his word so I may have peace in my life and protection from the enemy . I want to change so bad I know the devil is in so many things , but I love Jesus and he's there whenever I need him God has never failed me and sorry if I'm not making a lot of sense I'm still learning but I do accept Jesus Christ as my lord in savior and I'm committed to understanding his word , I want to to dissect the Bible and really get to know the word of God , I want to get to know Jesus on a personal level . For much of my teenage years I rebeled against him and didn't believe in it , but I am now saved

    Hi, don't sweat the small details. The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. The Holy Spirit has already found you. God will direct you as needed: remember, His will not yours, be done. So don't push yourself. And, for now, be content as you simply read the Bible and keep this in your Heart:

    Mark 12:28-34

    Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, "Which is the first commandment of all?" Jesus answered him, "The first of all the commandments is: 'Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one. And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.' This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: 'You shall love your neighbour as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." So the scribe said to Him, "Well said, Teacher. You have spoken the truth, for there is one God, and there is no other but He. And to love Him with all the heart, with all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, is more than all the whole burnt offerings and sacrifices." Now when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, He said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God."

    Trust in Jesus and all will be well; even in regard the Enemy. The Enemy is currently in panic-mode, as he knows his time is short and his days are numbered. All the horrors of the world and the attacks on the minds of children from certain 'proud' folk is all part of the (already failed) plan to undermine the Kingdom. God's Kingdom is already here. This world was bought and paid for with Jesus' Blood. The enemy has no power over those that are saved. So, have no fear, God's Kingdom is here. Yes, there's going to be a bit of trouble, but everything is going according to God's Plan and all will be to His Glory. Hold fast, enjoy your new-found Life and Trust In Jesus. Blessings to You.

    Hi Jessica

    Here are some Scriptures to point you in the right direction, 1Cor 2:9-13, John 16:13;

    Quietly turn, looking within you & listen to the still small Voice of conscience, the one that corrects you when you done something wrong & admonishes you for it. This is the Spirit of Grace appearing within you, who is Christ Col 1:27,28 who been hidden within us, which God willed to make known unto us. Its 1John 2:27

    What God requires of us is to live according to the Truth that we now know, & as we are faithful in exercising His Truth, by being doers of the Word, James 1:22-25, we grow in Grace & more Light is given unto us, Thus Proverb 4:18

    In my own life journey God lead me to pray for a deeper love for Him, who is the personification of Truth. 2 Thess 2:10,11 so in my understanding of these verses, if I would truly love God more than myself. God would break the deception that I was presently in & keep me from being deceive, all through a devout love for His Truth.

    So wait upon the Lord in quietness & stillness of heart, & in simplicity of soul seek His Face 2 Cor 4:6,7, He is Treasure in our earthen vessels, the excellency of the power to open our understand to received the things of God that been freely given unto us, it is not of ourselves, but of God.

    Your very desire to draw closer to Him, came from the Father John 6:44 by His Spirit within you, continue in His love.

    Psalm 51:6

    In love & truth,
