"If it had not been for the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say:" Psalm 124:1
OUR CHALLENGE TODAY!
What follows in Psalm 124:2-8 is a listing of several events that David reflects upon and the possible outcomes if God had not been there protecting. God protects his people, whether it is giving us victory over our enemies who would gladly swallow us up, protecting us against floods and storms of life, or making a way of escape through the narrow passages that are secret to all but God. Can you make a similar list that allows reflection upon the times in life that you can say, "If it had not been for God"? A list that includes all that He has done and all that might have been if He not been there for you. After you go through your list, take some time today to give thanks to Jesus, consider how he has cared for you, and then share this with another who needs hope for their life situations.
"Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth."
“But if we hope for what we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.” Romans 8:25
