Looking Unto The LORD

LOOKING UNTO THE LORD Psalm 123                 As the Psalmist writes on the approach to the worship of God he ushers us into a world view which is very different from the one which we were raised in.  He begins with an emphatic word which causes us to look up to God.  The Psalmist comes… Continue reading Looking Unto The LORD

An Astonishing Invitation
