Discussion for Psalms 12:8

  • Gloria on Psalms 12:8
    All this is true, But God! is still in control. We as believers must keep our eyes and faith upon our God. He told us in this world we would face this, but to be of good cheer because He has overcome it. He also said, No weapon formed against you shall prosper and every tongue that would rise to judge you shall be condemned. Yes, the wicked walk among us too, but remember, this when the thief is caught. It has to give back 7 times and their wealth is stored up for us. You just pray, they accept Jesus as Lord! before it is too late. Psalms 37 really tells you about the wicked and the end results. None of us is getting away with anything. We are all storing up treasures that we will one day reap, good or evil. God is our shepherd. You sow to the flesh and you will reap destructions. You sow to the Spirit, you will reap eternal life. It is only when you walk according to the Spirit Of God, there is no condemnations. Amen. Stay focus and obey God and pray for the lost and all will be ok
