Will they revive the stones out of the heaps of the rubbish which are burned
1. I HAVE FOUND A HIDING PLACE FROM THE DEVIL
Like Job, we too are in the care of a loving God, who shelters us from the wicked ways of the devil
1-3. The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
Romans 5:8-11 says
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. 11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
~The word ‘atonement’ in verse 11 is defined as a covering. Read it with the word covering instead of atonement
~The word ‘atonement is made up of three words (at) (one) (ment) which means “being at one”
**Aren’t you glad that you are one in Jesus Chrst?

One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
