In this month’s series, Cheating: Breaking the Rules, we’re learning how we can step out in faith away from the faulty system of rules set up by society and break those rules to follow GOD.  This week, we’re hearing on Asherah, the pagan god of sensuality and war.  As we’ve learned over the last month, one of the best weapons GOD gives us in the battle against the pagan gods of society is His Word.  Therefore, we turn to His promises and trust in His Word as we turn away from Asherah.  This is a collection of 50 promises from GOD directed to us, so that we find our fulfillment, sustenance and pleasure in Him.
