Blessed Assurance – Psalm 124

Blessed Assurance!  I am His.   
….and He is mine; my Redeemer, my Master, my King, my Refuge, my Fortress…
 
…my Help.
 
As I have been sobered again by the times we live in, I have also been rejoicing in the marvelous ever-present truth that God is sovereign and the He is our help at ALL times.  The sobering thoughts of persecution are not to bring anxiety, but rather expectant hope in the name of the LORD…I hope you are strengthened by the words of Psalm 124

124:1 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side—
let Israel now say—
if it had not been the Lord who was on our side
when people rose up against us,
then they would have swallowed us up alive,
when their anger was kindled against us;
then the flood would have swept us away,
the torrent would have gone over us;
then over us would have gone
the raging waters.

Blessed be the Lord,
who has not given us
as prey to their teeth!
We have escaped like a bird
from the snare of the fowlers;
the snare is broken,
and we have escaped!

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

Blessed assurance!
