Psalm 124

What if the Lord had not been on our side?  Let all Israel repeat: What if the Lord had not been on our side when people attacked us? They would have swallowed us alive in their burning anger.  The waters would have engulfed us; a torrent would have overwhelmed us.  Yes, the raging waters of their fury would have overwhelmed our very lives.  Praise the Lord, who did not let their teeth tear us apart!  We escaped like a bird from a hunter’s trap.  The trap is broken, and we are free!  Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.(New Living Translation) 

Do you ever feel trapped by overwhelming odds?  David compared this feeling to that of a bird outwitted and snared by a hunter.  With God, there is always a way out because He is the Creator of all that exists.  No problem is beyond His ability to solve, no circumstance is too difficult for Him.  We can turn to the Creator for help in our time of need, for He is on our side.  God will provide a way out, we need only trust Him and look for it.

 Heavenly Father,
I thank You today for the major events that You have orchestrated to shape my life. I am grateful for the ways that you have helped me and I pray for that I can continue to live my life in thankfulness for Your amazing grace.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
