Discussion for Psalms 124

  • A disciple
    "If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:" We know that we live in a world that is obsessed with filling the air with empty worthless noise to shield everyone from being able to think deeply about Jesus and the truth about their lives, for fear that anyone might repent. The LORD's Spirit in us resists friendship with the world and strengthens us against fear.

This could only happen in 2017...He continuous to give me strength ever day. There is no living without him. God's will be done in my hacker's life and in mine. I have forgave them. But I know that GOD may still seek HIS revenge.
