Psalm 124 reminds Israel not to forget who rescued them. If it hadn’t been for God, their enemies would have destroyed them and the waters would have raged over them. But God, in His lovingkindness saved them with a series of incredible miracles.
Our souls have escaped like a bird from the trapper’s snare; the snare is broken and we have escaped. Psalm 124:7
This psalm remembers what God has done for Israel up to the date it was written. God has done so much more. Everything He has done is to be cherished. When I read verse 7, I think of Jesus. God’s most miraculous intervention for all of us. Where would you be if Jesus had not intervened in your life-story and rescued you? Sometimes, when the world gets loud and situations get difficult for us, we forget: we are free. God has saved us and nothing can change that.
If the Son gives you freedom, you are free! John 8:36
You are free.
See you tomorrow for psalm 125.
