We think we’ve got troubles? King Alfred, twelve hundred years ago–he had troubles! Heathen poured across the sea and swamped his kingdom, they’d have killed him if they’d caught him, he had to hide out in a peasant’s shack in the middle of a swamp…
And he wrote this: King Alfred’s War Song. “For the Lord is our defense, Jesu defend us!” I don’t know about you, but I need a belt of that just now.
Psalm 127: “My hope is in the LORD, which made heaven and earth.”
Someday the heathen will either be converted or destroyed. By their own hand, most likely.
Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. (Ephesians 6)
