– The Hard Knocks of Faith Paperback
“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.” (John 14:1)
It has been proven both from the Holy Scriptures and practical experiences of true believers of the Lord Jesus Christ, in all generations that, the Almighty God possess infinite fullness, perfection and truthfulness that guarantee absolute trust in Him.
