As true believers we have come to know Jesus Christ (God) in a very personal and spiritually intimate way. The result is we have learned that regardless of our surroundings and the seemingly insurmountable problems encountered in this world, God is in control. God will bring about all circumstances and experiences good and bad to ultimate victory and perfection in our lives. In the mean time God has empowered us with the knowledge of his Word and the Holy Spirit to vanquish the impact that hatred, sorrow and regret can have in destroying our lives. Most of them self inflicted as Dr Robert Jeffress points out in a recent teaching called "Living Without Regrets", please listen.
