When the enemies of your faith ( FEAR,DOUBT,UNBELIEF, REASONING, RATIONALIZING) comes banging on your door. Don’t call Jesus, He already give you the power,and authority to trample the enemy,so do it.

“Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you”. (Luke 10:19 AMPC)

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord”. (Isaiah 54:17 NKJV). OUR MAJOR WEAPONS OF SPIRITUAL WARFARE IS THE NAME OF JESUS; THE WORD OF GOD,AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, WHO LIVES IN US.

“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world”. (I John 4:4 NKJV).

“For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons. For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One), Being in readiness to punish every [insubordinate for his] disobedience, when your own submission and obedience [as a church] are fully secured and complete”.
(2 Corinthians 10:3‭-‬6 AMPC)

“THEREFORE THEN, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us, Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God. “[Ps. 110:1.](Hebrews 12:1‭-‬2 AMPC).

“Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect [when it is] God Who justifies [that is, Who puts us in right relation to Himself? Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those whom God has chosen? Will God, Who acquits us?] Who is there to condemn [us]? Will Christ Jesus (the Messiah), Who died, or rather Who was raised from the dead, Who is at the right hand of God actually pleading as He intercedes for us? Who shall ever separate us from Christ’s love?

Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword? Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter. [Ps. 44:22.] Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us. For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
(Romans 8:33‭-‬39 AMPC).


“So shall they fear The name of the Lord from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. “The Redeemer will come to Zion, And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,” Says the Lord. “As for Me,” says the Lord, “this is My covenant with them: My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants’ descendants,” says the Lord, “from this time and forevermore.” (Isaiah 59:19‭-‬21 NKJV)

“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord”. (I Corinthians 15:57‭-‬58 NKJV)


Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen.
Jude 1:24‭-‬25 NKJV


We can’t look at things naturally, when it comes to God. Because, faith is the substance of things hoped for,and the evidence of things not seen,as Hebrews 11:1 states. GOD IS ABLE TO DO ,JUST WHAT HE SAID HE WOULD DO. DON’T GIVE UP ON GOD.

“[The Lord] said, I will surely return to you when the season comes round, and behold, Sarah your wife will have a son. And Sarah was listening and heard it at the tent door which was behind Him. [Rom. 9:9-12.] Now Abraham and Sarah were old, well advanced in years; it had ceased to be with Sarah as with [young] women. [She was past the age of childbearing]. Therefore Sarah laughed to herself, saying, After I have become aged shall I have pleasure and delight, my Lord (husband), being old also? [I Pet. 3:6.]

And the Lord asked Abraham, Why did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I really bear a child when I am so old? IS ANYTHING TOO HARD OR TOO WONDERFUL FOR THE LORD? At the appointed time, when the season [for her delivery] comes around, I will return to you and Sarah shall have borne a son. [Matt. 19:26.]”.(Genesis 18:10‭-‬14 AMPC).

Let’s look Genesis 18:13-14 again.
And the LORD said unto Abraham…
So if this is the Lord’s question to you regarding your present problem, what would your answer be?

‘Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. THERE IS NOTHING TOO HARD FOR YOU. You show lovingkindness to thousands, and repay the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them—the Great, the Mighty God, whose name is the Lord of hosts. You are great in counsel and mighty in work, for Your eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, to give everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings”. (Jeremiah 32:17‭-‬19 NKJV).

“Then came the word of the Lord to Jeremiah, saying, BEHOLD, I AM THE LORD, THE GOD OF ALL FLESH; IS THERE ANYTHING TOO HARD FOR ME?”(Jeremiah 32:26‭-‬27 AMPC)

But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”(Matthew 19:26 NKJV).

However, in Mark 10:27 Jesus said:
…for with God all things are possible.
Mark 9:23 Jesus also said: If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.
-So I say unto you be encouraged and stay encouraged.
Psalm 37:7-8
Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not yourself…
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not yourself in any way…
-There is nothing that is too hard for the Lord.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to Jesus be all the glory. Amen!


You are not HOPELESS!
HOPE: a desired belief and expectation of the fulfillment of the promises of God in our lives.
Psalm 146:5
Happy is he that has the God of Jacob for his help, whose HOPE is in the LORD his God:
Psalm 71:5
For You are my HOPE, O Lord God…
Romans 5:3-4
…we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation works patience; And patience, experience; and experience, HOPE:
And HOPE makes you not ashamed…
Proverb 13:12
Without HOPE the the heart becomes sick.
-You are never without HOPE in the Lord.
-Keep your HOPE in the Lord.
-God blesses those whose HOPE is in Him, and happy are those whose HOPE is in the Lord.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to Jesus be all the glory. Amen!


GOD IS ALWAYS FAITHFUL TO US. ARE WE FAITHFUL TO HIM? You will never find anyone more FAITHFUL than God. Yet you have people who don’t trust Him. Because, they don’t know Him,and haven’t tried Him.

“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness”. (Lamentations 3:22‭-‬23 NKJV).

“Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the FAITHFUL God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;..”.(Deuteronomy 7:9 NKJV).

“Thus says the Lord, The Redeemer of Israel, their Holy One, To Him whom man despises, To Him whom the nation abhors, To the Servant of rulers: “Kings shall see and arise, Princes also shall worship, Because of the Lord who is faithful, The Holy One of Israel; And He has chosen You.” (Isaiah 49:7 NKJV)

“God is FAITHFUL, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord”. (I Corinthians 1:9 NKJV).

“Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is FAITHFUL, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it”. (I Corinthians 10:12‭-‬13 NKJV).

“But as God is FAITHFUL, our word to you was not Yes and No.” (II Corinthians 1:18 NKJV).

“Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is FAITHFUL, who also will do it”. (I Thessalonians 5:23‭-‬24 NKJV).

“Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you, and that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; for not all have faith. But the Lord is FAITHFUL, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one. And we have confidence in the Lord concerning you, both that you do and will do the things we command you. Now may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patience of Christ”. (II Thessalonians 3:1‭-‬5 NKJV).


“The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good. The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God. They have all turned aside, They have together become corrupt; There is none who does good, No, not one”. (Psalms 14:1‭-‬3 NKJV)

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them”. (Romans 1:18‭-‬32 NKJV)



“You shall love the Lord your God with ALL your heart, with ALL your soul, and with ALL your strength. “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart”.
(Deuteronomy 6:5‭-‬6 NKJV)

“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with ALL your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In ALL your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths”. (Proverbs 3:5‭-‬6 AMPC).

“As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind; for the Lord searches ALL hearts and understands ALL the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever”. (I Chronicles 28:9 NKJV).

“The preparations of the heart belong to man, But the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. ALL the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, But the Lord weighs the spirits. Commit your works to the Lord, And your thoughts will be established. The Lord has made ALL for Himself, Yes, even the wicked for the day of doom. Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord; Though they join forces, none will go unpunished “. (Proverbs 16:1‭-‬5 NKJV).

“And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with ALL your heart and with ALL your soul, that you may live. “Also the Lord your God will put all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you. And you will again obey the voice of the Lord and do ALL His commandments which I command you today. The Lord your God will make you abound in ALL the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your land for good. For the Lord will again rejoice over you for good as He rejoiced over your fathers, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which are written in this Book of the Law, and if you turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and with ALL your soul”.
(Deuteronomy 30:6‭-‬10 NKJV)

“We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] All things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose”. ( Romans 8:28 AMPC).

Totally (All-Out) Trust In The Lord,let’s look at and meditate on Proverb 3:5-7
Trust in the LORD with ALL of your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding.
In ALL of your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes…
-We cannot trust in God and lean to our own understanding at the same time. It will not work.
-Too often while we are trusting the Lord we let our own understanding get in the way.
-In ALL our ways the Lord must be acknowledged.
-God directs us in ALL things.
-We cannot be wise in our own eyes. Meaning that we must cease from our own wisdom and only function in the Wisdom of the Lord.

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus”. (Philippians 4:6‭-‬7 NKJV).

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to ALL liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in ALL his ways”. (James 1:5‭-‬8 NKJV).

-Our job is to always to cooperate with God on His terms. We are workers together with Him, 2 Corinthians 6:1.
-Let us be lead by the Lord our Shepherd and by His Holy Spirit as we continue to live by every word of God.
+++Blessed we are and blessed we will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!


When God doesn’t remove or destroy the problems you face. He wants you to go through or walk through it. But you are not alone , while you are walking through it, He is with you every step of the way.

“Yea, though I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever”. (Psalms 23:4‭-‬6 NKJV).

“The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all “. (Psalms 34:17‭-‬19 NKJV).

“When you PASS THROUGH THE WATERS, I will be with you; And THROUGH THE RIVERS, they shall not overflow you. When you WALK THROUGH THE FIRE, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you”. (Isaiah 43:2 NKJV)

Here is the solid proof of this.

“Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.” Then Nebuchadnezzar was full of fury, and the expression on his face changed toward Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. He spoke and commanded that they heat the furnace seven times more than it was usually heated. And he commanded certain mighty men of valor who were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, and cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Then these men were bound in their coats, their trousers, their turbans, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Therefore, because the king’s command was urgent, and the furnace exceedingly hot, the flame of the fire killed those men who took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?” They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.” “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” (Daniel 3:16‭-‬25 NKJV).

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal”. (II Corinthians 4:16‭-‬18 NKJV).

A Lesson in FAITH
+When we do not exercise FAITH in God we are actually saying that He is a Liar, and we are also treating Him like a Person without integrity.
+When we pray to God for things it doesn’t matter what we see? No. What matters is what we believe.
+When we prayed does it matter how we FEEL? No. What matters is what we BELIEVE.
+The CARNAL MIND thinks about how we FEEL.
+Faith makes no sense to the Natural Man and the Carnal Man.
+The SPIRITUAL MAN and the MIND of Christ knows everything by FAITH in God, and FAITH in His Word.
+FAITH always sees the finished product.
+When we walk by FAITH we are walking in the SPIRIT and from the HEART, and NOT according to our physical senses.
+Remember we walk by FAITH and NOT BY SIGHT.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!


The devil is a thief, and John 10:10 tells us this :
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly”.

“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness”.(Lamentations 3:22‭-‬23 NKJV)

The easiest thing for us to do is to blame God for everything wrong that happens to us. Then we find ourselves questioning God, but we forget that there are other entities that come into play: The world, The flesh, and the devil.

“For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever”. (I John 2:16-17).

“Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God”. (James 4:1‭-‬4 NKJV).

Family, we must stop equating God to punishment: He is a God of mercy and love. If we got what we truly deserved, we’d all be dead!

“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance”. (II Peter 3:9 NKJV).

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” (John 3:16‭-‬21 NKJV).

“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time..”. (I Timothy 2:1‭-‬6 NKJV).

It’s time to stop blaming God, and blame that dirty, low down, good for nothing,lake of fire bound devil.

Proverb 15:29 tells us that:
The Lord hears the prayers of the righteous.
In Luke 18:1
Jesus spoke a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.
Ephesians 6:18
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit…
-God our Heavenly Father always wants to hear from us through our prayers to Him.
-Prayers are the primary means on our side by which we give God access to divinely intervene in our lives, the lives of other, situations and circumstances.
-God hears our prayers, and He answers them.
1 Thessalonians 5:17
Pray without ceasing.
-Answers to our prayers may be delayed, but never denied. Our God may not answer when you expect Him to, but He always delivers on time.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!


It doesn’t matter how bad things are; nor how big or small your sins are, Jesus forgives all,when you confess.
In John 6:37 :
Jesus said… him that comes to me I will in no wise cast out.

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us”. (I John 1:8‭-‬10 NKJV).

“..If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place”. (II Chronicles 7:14‭-‬15 NKJV).

“Let my cry come before You, O Lord ; Give me understanding according to Your word. Let my supplication come before You; Deliver me according to Your word. My lips shall utter praise, For You teach me Your statutes. My tongue shall speak of Your word, For all Your commandments are righteousness”.
Psalms 119:169-172

+++In life we make mistakes, but we don’t have to be a mistake. God is Merciful, Gracious and Forgiving because God is Love.
+++With a sincere heart just repent, and ask God for forgiveness. That’s what God is saying to you today,
Hebrews 8:12
For I will be merciful to your unrighteousness, and your sins and your iniquities will I remember no more.
+++It time to get over it and move on. Jesus has never left you or forsaken you. The Spirit of God is in you. You have the heart of God, the Mind of Christ and God is the Strength of your life, alleluia!
+++May I remind you that you can also do all things through Christ which strengthens you, Phil 4:13.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the Glory. Amen! and Alleluia! Hallelujah! Glory to God.


Proverb 15:3
The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
Hebrews 4:13
…but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him (God) with whom we have to do.
-There is nothing that is done in darkness that will not be brought to the light.
-There is an appointed time when the truth of all things will be revealed.
-Some of us are tormented by wrongdoings TO others and wrongdoings BY others and we do not want anyone to know, but God knows.
-Things like these are ruining people’s lives, breaking them down mentally, physically, emotionally, making them sick and some sick to the point of death.
-Where do we go from here?
-How can things get better?
-Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the life. He is the ONLY Person that can permanently resolve all of our problems. Go to Jesus with it.
-There is no condemnation for us who are in Christ Jesus. For who the Son sets free is free indeed.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
