Were it not for the LORD…

Where would I be… were it not for the LORD?

Psalm 124 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 cover 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.

My help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth. Too often I neglect, even run from this blessed saving truth. But today, with Israel, I will say…if it had not been the LORD who is and has been on my side I would not have escaped the flood, torrent, raging waters. Blessed be the LORD! My help is in the name of the LORD who made heaven and earth.

So, where would I be, and where could I go… were it not for the LORD?
LORD, I want to yearn for you. I want to burn with passion over You and only You. I want to yearn.
