Passion for Praise: 'Like a Great Warrior'

Wednesday, September 5, 2007

The LORD stands beside me like a great warrior. Before him my persecutors will stumble. They cannot defeat me. They will fail and be thoroughly humiliated. Their dishonor will never be forgotten. O LORD of Heaven's Armies, you test those who are righteous, and you examine the deepest thoughts and secrets.
— Jeremiah 20:11-12
