For such is God, Our God forever and ever; He will guide us until death."
But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol; For He will receive me."
Blessed be the Lord, Who daily bears our burden, The God Who is our salvation. God is to us a God of deliverances; and to God the Lord belong escapes from death."
AND the CLINCHER:
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints."
It certainly goes right in line when the Apostle Paul reminds us that whether we live or whether we die we belong to the Lord. OUR problem is we really only focus on ONE place .... Life HERE on the earth. We need to go to the "heavenly woodshed", if you will, of John 14, Revelation 21/22, etc., and continually remind ourselves that not only is God SOVEREIGN over ALL ... Life AND Death ... HE should be our longing ... that is ... to be PRESENT with Him ... in Heaven for ALL eternity.
Can we EVER get our MINDS to DWELL where our spirits (and bodies) soon WILL???
