The Message

By PASTOR BILL MYERS,

God is a good God!

“Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of ‘hope.’  Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.”  (Zechariah 9:12)

Do you feel that it just couldn’t get any worse in your life?  Do you feel like the ‘bottom has just fallen out’ and you could possibly drown in all your troubles?
