1If the Lord had not been on our side—let Israel say—2if the Lord had not been on our side when people attacked us… Psalm 124:1-2 (NIV)
What a joy to know that God is on your side! Knowing that God is on your side brings comfort to a fearful soul. When the enemy attacks, God is on our side fighting the battle for us. As God’s children we deal with spiritual enemies but we can take courage because the Sovereign Lord is on our side. The Lord declared to Israel through the prophet Isaiah, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me (54:17).” This was not to say they would not have any trouble or face enemy attacks but it was to assure them that God was on their side to give them the victory. This promise is for you today. As you face trials and it seems like you are being defeated, remember God will not allow the weapons that are formed against you to succeed. God delivers us from those who seek to destroy us. So, remain faithful to God and obey His commands and you can declare as David; If the Lord had not been on my side.
