Discussion for Psalms 126

  • Adekunle
    We should let free our mind, "when the Lord turn again the captivity" we are already saved by the blood of Jesus by God's grace. Our faith is not enough to see the great work of salvation. Is a great joy. Peace of mind. Assurance of life.......
  • Nana Asare Bediako
    This is a reminder to all the children of God to be careful of the life we live on this sinful world because coming out from captive is not easy if not by not by his grace.
  • TR Ahlstrom
    If our heart is hard, no tears will flow. It is, moreover, of no avail to invent such sorrow. Crocodile tears don't count. But when we truly consider the God against whom we have sinned and terrors of Calvary where those sins were laid fully on the LORD Jesus, the rivers of our eyes will be opened.

    First our mind is awakened to God. Then our heart is broken.
  • Joseph

  • Bless the name of our God. Last night I was walking on the street to my residenc
    Bless the name of our Lord
  • A disciple
    "When the LORD turned again our captivity..." A look into the future; hopefully not too far away; when the completed matters of God with men are openly fulfilled before the eyes of all. From out of the ages of darkness and surreal shall break forth such joy and laughter and singing, for the glory of the Lord among us at last! But for the now we sow in tears, and bear precious seed for the Harvest.
