    Interesting...long, a lot is being said. It takes time to digest...though through reading Psalm 119,120

    I love this psalm because it 'drills' the word of God into your head and the TRUTH of it. We need his word to be drilled, ingrained into us as Christians - to have our weapons against satan.

    Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation : Whom shall I fear ? The word of God lights my path : I choose to walk in His word : The word of God lights my path so there is no need of stumbling : I can see where I'm going : When I hear from God's word then I know where I am going : I Thank God that He has made it possible for me to have a copy of His word and that I get to , not have to, walk in His word. It is my choice. Sometimes it is hard : But that is when I'm contending with my flesh I get myself lined up and then I'm walking in His path !!! Praise God !!
