    Its one of my favourite psalm. As long as we put our trust in God not in man.He will bring every thing concerning us to perfection. It reminds us of His greatness that He never sleeps nor slumbers. He is the Mighty one of His people Israel. If you are picking on Israel watch out, for God will get ya.
  • Cotina white
    It's a reminder of what God will do whenever you are depress and feeling down
    It helps to realize that help is there all we need to do is ask
    We know that we should stop the worrying, and fretting, but yet because we are human we fail to take God at his word
    Like myself I know his promise and his words, but I need strong faith to know that he will do what he said he will do
