Discussion for Psalms 119:28

  • Everyday life brings grief and it doesn 't matter what era you are born in. This is when we run to the word of God. John knew this when he penned the words in 1 John 2:14, I write unto you young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one. There is nothing that will encourage or strengthen one like the word of God does. We are reading and it 's like a verse is lifted off the page and you know that it 's just for you.
