Importance of a Firm Determination

Importance of a Firm Determination

Ratings: (0)|Views: 7 |Likes:
Published by Sadhak_Das
Everything except God is enlisting into non-existence. If one firmly ascertains with an unyielding conviction that God IS present – then the responsibility is shouldered by God to make Himself known. We cannot know God by our efforts, but when the sentiments are firm that "God is everywhere," then God makes Himself known. To know God is to know that God is present.
