When we talk about our lives, we may talk about what we have achieved. We may talk about what we have survived. We may talk about both.
Psalm 129 looks to the future with hope, based on the evidence of what Israel, as a nation, has survived. Although they faced many trials, the LORD saved them and they know the LORD will save them again.
As a believer, my hope is also based on what Jesus has done. Jesus saved me, he healed me, he broke the chains that oppressed me, he gave me a new perspective and a longer runway. I know he will always be with me, whatever comes, and he will help me.
But the LORD is good, he has cut me free from the ropes of the ungodly. Psalm 129:4
See you tomorrow for Psalm 130.
