Chapter 7 Security Psalm 125
pg 81 "Better than a city wall, better than a military fortification is the presence of the God of peace."
In all the ups and downs of Israel's history - they are always God's people. God is there - always - regardless of how we feel or what we choose. Our security lies in who God IS, not in what we feel.
pg 83 "Discipleship is a decision to live by what I know about God, not by what I feel about him or myself or my neighbors.
Evil is never permanent, it is always temporary. It may be long in our view, but we have the promise of 1 Cor. 10:13. God will not allow more than he will allow and He is always faithful and will provide for us.
pg 85 "Discipleship is not a contract in which if we break our part of the agreement, he (God) is free to break his; it is a covenant in which he establishes the conditions and guarantees the results."
Matt 6: 25, 31, 34 - our life with God is secure.
