What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

Hmmm….interesting that God himself says find the truth and the truth will set you free. So, if you ask God to open your eyes, open your ears to hear and soften your hearts to receive, He will give you the truth. I was prophesied over back in 2011, I would be given “eyes to see, hands to heal and a heart to receive.” I didn’t understand it then but I do now. I was also prophesied that God wanted a deeper relationship with me, more trust. I figured and completed this through SOZO healing and deliverance in Sept. 2015 I was also told to get grounded in the word of God, so I would longer be tossed to and fro like a ship at sea without an anchor.
