BELIEVING GOD

DESCRIPTION: This group will be studying Believing God by Beth Moore. A quote from the author about what this study entails... “God confronted me with the truth that though I had believed in Him for many years, I had hardly begun to believe Him.  God is so much more than we have yet acknowledged and experienced.  He is capable of tremendously more than we have witnessed.  I have become utterly convinced that we see so little primarily because we believe Him for so little.  Here's great news: God wants to change all that! God began challenging me in every situation with these kinds of questions: "Beth, are you going to believe Me on this or not? What does My Word have to say?  Who and what will you choose to believe?"...I want to share with you some truths that radically changed my personal faith-walk, in hopes that you likewise will be encouraged."
