Read Psalm 124

Read Psalm 124

What if the Lord had not been on our side?
Answer, O Israel!
2     “If the Lord had not been on our side
when our enemies attacked us,
3     then they would have swallowed us alive
in their furious anger against us;
4     then the flood would have carried us away,
the water would have covered us,
5           the raging torrent would have drowned us.”
6     Let us thank the Lord,
who has not let our enemies destroy us.
7     We have escaped like a bird from a hunter’s trap;
the trap is broken, and we are free!
8     Our help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.


"What if the LORD had not been on our side?" - Verse 1 asks a difficult and humbling question.  In this case the nation Israel's existence is a gift brought about through their miraculous deliverance from slavery in Egypt.


Lord, let me not forget where I would be without your help.
