If not for the Lord. August 29
If it had not been for the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say; Psalm124:1
Oh my I would hate to think what would have happened to Israel if God had not been with them. All their enemies in the Bible and Modern Times. Their own faults seem to be enough to have sunk them also. So how have they survived, only one reason; it’s that the Lord has been on their side. Scriptures teach that they are an example for us. Oh Christian brothers and sisters I would hate to think where we would be as individuals and as a church, if it has not been for the Lord who is in our side. The church has plenty enemies. We ourselves have plenty too. Some we even cause ourselves. But thanks be to God for his most gracious help, which he gives thru Jesus the Christ. Let’s hold close to Jesus, seek him and love him. And surely as we pray he will still help us today. Psalm 124 begins with our verse then it ends with this verse. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth. Psalm 124:8. Israel knew where their Hope was and so do we. Praise our Lord!!!!
