Psalm 124. What if He had not been on my side? If I were not His child? Honestly, what would happen? Furthermore, how would I survive without hope? First, I would not be able to function in the world. Second, I may “make do” but I would not have joy. Third, what is the point and purpose if I don’t know where I will be in the end? Fourth, hell scares me! I mean it really really does.
1 What if the Lord had not been on our side?
Let all Israel repeat:
2 What if the Lord had not been on our side
when people attacked us?
3 They would have swallowed us alive
in their burning anger.
4 The waters would have engulfed us;
a torrent would have overwhelmed us.
5 Yes, the raging waters of their fury
would have overwhelmed our very lives.
6 Praise the Lord,
who did not let their teeth tear us apart!
7 We escaped like a bird from a hunter’s trap.
The trap is broken, and we are free!
8 Our help is from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
