Whenever Hearing “You are my sword and shield, Though troubles linger still, Whom shall I fear”, I’m inspired to depend on and look to God, then afraid of nothing, just like the name of the song, “Whom shall I fear.” God’s words are our sword and shield. Having God’s words as our life, we can discern good from evil and not fall for Satan’s tricks. In this way, we will haveand stand testimony for Him, when tempted and attacked by Satan.
In this world, we face temptations and attacks both great and small from Satan every day. Sometimes, we have a tough time at work, marriage, family and study. And sometimes, we get ridiculed and arrested for our belief. All of these make us feel uneasy, and much pressure. If we lack faith in God, we’ll easily complain against Him, even will leave Him. Hence, it is necessary for us to know God’s work and know He perfects us through people, events and objects that we meet. God’s words say, “In every step of work that God does within people, externally it appears to be interactions between people, as if born of human arrangements, or from human interference. But behind the scenes, every step of work, and everything that happens, is a wager made by Satan before God, and requires people to stand firm in their testimony to God. Take when Job was tried, for example: Behind the scenes, Satan was making a bet with God, and what happened to Job was the deeds of men, and the interference of men.” “You must be awake and waiting at every moment, and you must come before Me more. You must recognize the various plots and cunning schemes of Satan, know the spirit, know people and be able to discern all kinds of people, matters and things; you must eat and drink more of My words and, more importantly, you must be able to eat and drink them by yourselves. Equip yourselves with all the truth, come before Me so that I may open your spiritual eyes and allow you to see all the mysteries that lie within the spirit….” From God’s words we can see that the environment comes upon us out of His permission. Satan uses various plots to make us stray from God and complain against Him. But, God’s wisdom is based on Satan’s schemes: He uses these environments make us to come before God often, seek His will and rely on Him to get wise to Satan’s tricks. After knowing His will, we can’t be afraid of any difficulties.
God’s words show us the way of practice: “If you wish to be perfected by God, you must learn to experience all things and be enlightened in all that you face. Whenever you are faced with something, be it good or bad, you should benefit from it and it should not cause you to become passive. No matter what, you should be able to consider it by standing on the side of God, and not analyze or study it from the perspective of man (this is a deviation in your experience). If this is the manner of your experience, then your heart will be taken over by the burdens for your life; you will live constantly in the light of God’s countenance and will not easily deviate in your practice. Such kind of man has great prospects.” If we practice based on His words, accept things we run into from Him and seek lessons that we ought to enter into, then our life will blossom more quickly. In this way, we’re neither afraid of difficulties nor Satan’s temptation.
Thanks to author’s beautiful song, it reminds us that God always stands by us and protect us. When something unpleasant happens it is due to His good intentions are surely behind it. We can overcome everything when depending on and looking to God. Thanks for His guidance and leadership! May we read God’s word more and pursue to make progress in life.

Best Christian Family Movie "Where Is My Home" | God Gave Me a Happy Family (English Dubbed) Wenya's parents separated when she was two, and after that she lived with her father and stepmother. Her stepmother couldn't stand her and was always arguing with her father. He had little choice—he had to send Wenya to her mother's house, but her mother was fully focused on running her business and didn't have any time to take care of Wenya, so she was often shuttled off to her relatives' and friends' homes to be fostered. After so many years of a life of foster care, young Wenya felt lonely and helpless, and longed for the warmth of a home. Only when her father and stepmother divorced did she return to her father's side, and from then on had a home, for better or for worse. Once Wenya grew up, she was very cautious and obedient, and she studied hard. But just as she was working hard to prepare for her college entrance examinations, misfortune came upon her: Her mother had a brain hemorrhage and became paralyzed and bedridden. Her stepfather abandoned her mother and even took control over all of her assets, and then her father was hospitalized with liver cancer…. Wenya could not possibly take on the burden of the household, so all she could do was plead with relatives and friends, but she was turned down. … Just as Wenya was suffering and without recourse, two sisters from the Church of Almighty God bore witness to Wenya, her mother and sister on the work of Almighty God in the last days. They came to understand the root of pain in people's lives from the words of Almighty God, and understood that only if people come in front of God can they gain God's protection and live in happiness. Only through the comfort of God's words were mother and daughters able to come out from their pain and helplessness. Wenya genuinely experienced the love and mercy of God; she finally felt the warmth of a home, and came into a true home. … If you have other understanding or new light about this gospel movie, you’re welcome to have a chat with us via the online chat window at the bottom of the website or send an email to email@example.com.

Two thousand years ago, the Lord Jesus prophesied, "And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him" (Matthew 25:6). "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20). For the last two thousand years, believers in the Lord have been watchful and awaiting the Lord's knock on the door, so how will He knock on mankind's door when He returns? In the last days, some people have testified that the Lord Jesus has returned—Almighty God incarnate—and that He is doing the work of judgment in the last days. This news has rocked the entire religious world. Yang Aiguang, the protagonist of the film, has believed in the Lord for decades and has always been enthusiastically engaged in work and preaching, waiting to welcome the Lord's return. One day, two people come and knock on the door, tell Yang Aiguang and her husband that the Lord Jesus has returned, and share the words of Almighty God with them. They are deeply moved by Almighty God's words, but because Yang Aiguang has been subjected to the fallacies, deception, and strictures of the pastors and elders, she throws the witnesses of The Church of Almighty God out of the house. After that, the witnesses knock on their door on many occasions and read the words of Almighty God to Yang Aiguang, bearing witness to God's work in the last days. During this time, the pastor disrupts and hinders Yang Aiguang time after time, and she continues to waver. However, through hearing the words of Almighty God, Yang Aiguang comes to understand the truth and gains discernment regarding the rumors and fallacies propagated by the pastors and elders. She finally understands how the Lord knocks on people's doors during His return in the last days, and how we should welcome Him. When the fog clears, Yang Aiguang finally hears the voice of God and acknowledges that Almighty God really is the return of the Lord Jesus!
