    Verse 13
    After the Lord has taken you through thick and thin you can only be confident that He will be with you in any harassment of the enemy as you continue to depend on Him and abiding in His truth. He will surely deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living. Thank you Lord Jesus.

    If we put full trust in Jehovah God and have his protection and blessing, there is nothing that any man can do to us that would cause us eternal harm.

    In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me. Psalms 56:11 The temptation of these times is to let the head hang down with dismay and the heart with grief, because the restraint before the wicked is taken away. The things which have ever been told us, as also to our ancestors are not for us to be scandalized by them, but to understand how they are necessary to happen first and then the end. As it was in the days before the flood, the world was going on as if it would never end even though the holy ancients had been preaching and forewarning in the end no one believed but Noah, and ALL the rest who had abandoned the holy and sanctified way of fellowship with God, and faith in the coming Saviour, perished in the cataclysm. Hold fast the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and put your trust in Him who is coming to save the world from the wicked. And be not afraid of their threats and their roaring against you: its for the Lord's sake that we are His face and His words and His hands up to the end and He cannot forget you.
