Psalm 124Amplified Bible (AMP)
A Song of Ascents. Of David.
1 If it had not been the Lord Who was on our side—now may Israel say—
2 If it had not been the Lord Who was on our side when men rose up against us,
3 Then they would have quickly swallowed us up alive when their wrath was kindled against us;
4 Then the waters would have overwhelmed us and swept us away, the torrent would have gone over us;
5 Then the proud waters would have gone over us.
6 Blessed be the Lord, Who has not given us as prey to their teeth!
7 We are like a bird escaped from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped!
8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
I can't stop remembering the past and comparing it to the present! I am so thankful!!! Psalm 124 beautifully describes what would have happened to Israel if the Lord had not been on their side. Thinking about my own life, I think about what would have happened to me if the Lord had not been on my side. I take this Psalm personally, and I encourage all of you to apply it to your life as well, remembering that man (or woman) is not our enemy, but the evil one who whispers lies and stirs up contentions is our true enemy.
If it had not been the Lord Who was on my side when the evil one rose up against me, then he would have quickly swallowed me up alive when his wrath was kindled against me.
The waters would have overwhelmed me and swept me away, the torrent would have gone over me.
The proud waters would have gone over me.
Blessed be my Abba, Who has not given me as prey to his teeth!
I am like a bird escaped from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and I have escaped!
My Help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
This morning, I remember the past and give praise to my God Who was on my side, is on my side and will always be on my side! If I "feel" like all is against me, I will remember that the Author of Everything has my back. All for His glory!!!
