Today's Good News


9/16 Psalm 124
1 A song for the ascent to Jerusalem. A psalm of David. If the LORD had not been on our side — let Israel now say — 2 if the LORD had not been on our side when people rose up against us, 3 they would have swallowed us alive because of their burning anger against us. 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 Blessed be 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 the heavens and the earth.
The Lord is our help. He is ready to take care of us. Jesus is our strength and courage. He will equip us to face each day, one day at a time. Give Him your failures and victories, your fears and strength and the Lord will one day at a time change you to be more like Jesus. Seek the Lord and let Him have His way with you. Your way will be the right way under His Lordship.
