Chapter Summary

Gratitude to God for rescue

Here is another song of David, thanking God for past rescues. How true it is of us, too, that if God had not been on our side, we would be dead. Bear in mind this does not mean on “our side” as opposed to God’s other children. It means on our side, or at our side, against evil. When were you in a “snare” that God rescued you from?

Day 250

Blessed be You, O God, for Your past rescues, present care, and future promises.

Psalm 124:8

Psalm 124


124 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say;

If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us:

Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:

Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:

Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.

Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
