Psalm 68 reflects on the glory and power of the Lord. Psalm 68:19 says, "Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens."  Can you praise God when you are facing difficulties? The preceding verse says that when we trust and praise...

It's amazing how often, especially over the last few months, I have heard, been told personally, or read "God won't give you more than you can handle." That is not biblical. That statement is not the truth. While in 1 Corinthians 10:13, God does promise us that...
