    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.
