Wednesday Words

"If the LORD had not been on our side—
let Israel say-

if the LORD had not been on our side
when men attacked us,

when their anger flared against us,
they would have swallowed us alive;

the flood would have engulfed us,
the torrent would have swept over us,

the raging waters
would have swept us away.

Praise be to the LORD,
who has not let us be torn by their teeth.

We have escaped like a bird
out of the fowler's snare;
the snare has been broken,
and we have escaped.

Our help is in the name of the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth."

Psalm 124 (NIV)

More from Beth Moore this week . . .

She says in reference to the above Psalm and its writer,

"I can almost hear him chide, 'If God hasn't been good to you, don't bother. If He's never rescued you, save your breath. But if He has, and you know He has, lift your voices and give Him the praise due His name!'"

I praise Him today for rescuing me from myself. I can be the biggest obstacle there is to my own success and spiritual health. It is my own flesh at war with my spirit. The old adage is most true in my life. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

May I remember today, regardless of what comes my way; God has already rescued me. I am His, and I am safe in His arms. I pray these words resound with you today, too.

Thank you for the words! Verse 8 is a solid reminder for me today. I am starting a new challenge and this is a reminder I needed (needing the scripture reference more than anything).
