Faith Training: Seek God First
In this episode, I answer a viewer’s question, “What do I do when other people, either my spouse, my family, my friends, or even my pastor do not agree with what God is calling me to do?” My answer might surprise you.

He may call you to do things that may seem impossible and would be impossible without Him. Watch the video for more...
