Ephesians 2:8 (NIV), “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” The process of developing faith is a gift from God. Jesus said, “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him…” John 6:44. Right [...]
Use a multi-faceted approach to reduce stress and worry. Stress drains us physically, so quality rest, exercise and nourishment are important. There are many good web sites that elaborate on this.

Where in the Bible does it teach that God in his infinitive majestic power knows my needs before I kneel down to pray?
“… your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.” Matthew 6:8. Spirit-begotten Christians have returned to God’s family through justification in Christ.

Exodus 32:14, "So the LORD relented from the harm which He said He would do to His people." What does this scripture mean?

Exodus 8:15 (NKJV), “But when Pharaoh saw that there was relief, he hardened his heart and did not heed them, as the LORD had said.” It was the Lord’s mercy which caused Pharaoh to harden his own heart.
