“The plowers plowed up my back: they
made long their furrows” (Psalm 129:3).
These words apply to the suffering of
our Lord Jesus on the cross, but they
apply equally as well to anyone who
dares to live for Jesus. One man
recently commented, “I used to be an
angel until the backbiters bit off both
of my wings.” But that is nothing strange
or new if you love and serve Jesus – so
don’t be surprised when it happens to you;
even to those who are willing to suffer for
His cause (James 1:2-3,12).
