Discussion for Proverbs 30

  • Timothy Wayne George on Proverbs 30:14
    There will be a generation that will seek to oppress the poor from off the earth. Jesus told us the poor you will always have. God has promised to be a buckler to the poor. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of God. The book of James says that the poor, are rich in faith. So praise God because faith is our victory over this world. Thank God that we don't know what the New Year has in store for us, but we know who holds the future. The Lord will fight our battles, and we must stand still to see the salvation of the Lord.
