Mark Darling – Story 149
If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;
If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
Surely God has been on your side, surely The Lord has been on our side! As Moses prayed, if your presence goes not with me, carry us not up hence. It is abundantly evident that God has surrounded you with his presence and carried you in this work. We see that.
Then they had swallowed us up quick when their wrath was kindled against us:
The set apart, holy unto Jesus family that you have raised acts as such a defense that God has used to show countless family’s the danger of the world, but the liberty that is available under the shadow of the Most High.
Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul: then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
You have lived out before us how the flood of God’s wrath has been swallowed up on the cross and how joyous and exciting life in Christ is. You plead with us to receive through obedience the peace of Jesus that calms our fears and stresses of the world.
Blessed be the LORD, who has not given us as a prey to their teeth.
We heed your warning Darling family to the deceitfulness of the culture and the subtle lies that are sweeping away the masses within and without the church. Thank you for being watchmen for God.
Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
Praise The Lord for the astounding victory he wrought for us over death, Satan and the sin nature that sticks so close. You two testify to us singles at the Rock, the word of the gospel of our salvation and how the cross frees us from the grip of the flesh into the glorious liberty of the children of God!
Our help is in the name of The LORD, who made heaven and earth.
We follow your lead in finding help in God, and we give our lives, I Daniel give my life to share this news of our Creator with the world and for us as a church to be one upon our Lord’s return!
Love you, Mark and Kathy, Kathy I have probably but met you once or twice, but have observed how you glow of Christ and am eager to get to know you both more. So honored am I to serve Jesus under you both and am expectant for what God has for us, his people during our watch in this generation.
