Ruth 1:1the famine is in the city, and we shall die 2 Kin 7:4sojourn: for the LORD hath called for a famine; 2 Kin 8:1in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

fastQuick, speedy, rapid, swift, prompt, to be firmly anchored. DTP The disciple of Christ is to be firmly anchored to Christ and His Word.

Father / father / fathersA male parent, meaning "protector", often one who is a leader or one who brought something into being; one who cares for and helps nurture a child or children. DTP The disciple has an earthly father but, through faith, we also have a heavenly Father who cares and watches over us at all times, seeing the challenges that we face and knowing our daily needs.Therefore shall a man leave his father Gen 2:24 (Matt 19:5; Mark 10:7; Eph 5:31)for a father of many nations Gen 17:5 (Rom 4:17)he sware unto thy fathers to give thee, a land Ex 13:5is my God, ... my father's God, and I will exalt him.
