    Vs 2,3 may seem condescending, but that is not the case. Jehovah God is indeed slow to anger and great in power, but will by no means hold back punishment where punishment is due. So we all should examine our steps so as not to be counted as one of God's adversaries. We each reap what we sow.

    The LORD is faithful and true. The wise will lay their burdens at His feet and trust in Him in all things. He is the great Creator and caretaker of the universe, who better to trust? certainly not the so-called leaders and wise of this world! Stay strong in the LORD my brothers and sisters in Christ and enjoy your day.
