Just thought I’d share this Psalm with you all today…

Psalm 124

 1 “If it had not been the LORD who was on our side,”
         Let Israel now 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 swallowed us alive,
         When their wrath was kindled against us;
 4 Then the waters would have overwhelmed us,
         The stream would have gone over our soul;
 5 Then the swollen waters
         Would have gone over our soul.”
 6 Blessed be the LORD,
         Who has not given us as prey to their teeth.
 7 Our soul has escaped as a bird 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.

His grace is what sustains us. Where would we be if the LORD were not on our side. We certainly would be consumed by our enemies. “If God is for us, who can be against us?”Romans 8:31. Praise be to Jesus who has taken our sins upon Himself! We have been adopted and thus His fatherly care is upon us.
