If it had not been for the LORD…

If it had not been the LORD who was on our side… (Psalms 124:1a NKJV)

In ancient times when people traveled to Jerusalem to attend a feast they often sang songs on the way.  There are a number of songs in the Psalms called Songs of Ascents which they sang as they went up the last mountain with the view of Jerusalem before them.  Psalms 124 is one of these songs.  They sang a song “If it had not been the LORD who was on our side…” and they sang of times when the LORD was with them and protected them.  Recount the times when you were going through a difficult time that if the LORD wasn’t on your side things would have been very different.  What about the time you had a near accident and you just knew an angel was there keeping it from happening?

Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. (Psalms 124:8 NKJV)
