The Lord Is for You/He Is Our Help (Psalm 124)

It may be a challenge to believe that the Lord is on your side, that he is for you. That is the assumption in Psalm 124. It starts, “If the Lord had not been on our side.” He was and is. The Psalm ends with these words, “Our help is in the name of the Lord.” In between these first and last verses are expressions of difficult experiences we are confronted with in our lives. The challenge: in the midst of life’s challenges to believe and experience that the Lord on your side and he is your help no matter what.
