“The Lord Who Was on Our Side”
Read Psalms 124
The person who stands alone against the forces of evil doesn’t stand a chance. But, in fact, no one does stand alone; the Lord stands with his people, a stance confirmed in Jesus who said, “I am with you always, to the close of the age” (Matthew 28:20).
PRAYER: I bless your great name, Almighty God. I look back over past years and remember the help I have known from your hand. Thank you for your strengthe shared with me, for your power exercised in me, for your being on my side in Jesus Christ, Amen.
