Sometimes, numbers are a fountain from where thirsty souls may find refreshing. Numbers can be a spring from where tired legs may get a fresh bounce. They may be a new boat from which tired sea farers may regain their confidence. Numbers can give strength. The kind some have found from the stands as their fans applaud their play and performance.
And definitely the kind Apostle Paul must have thought about when he received a word of assurance from God to the effect that No matter what happens, I’m with you and no one is going to be able to hurt you. You have no idea how many people I have on my side in this city.”
