The Lord is on Our Side

Posted on: 7-15-112015

Tomorrow many of us will gather with family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving.  We will enjoy delicious food, good company, and create precious memories to be cherished for a lifetime.  We will also take time out to be thankful for our many blessings. I came across this verse this morning as I was reading my Bible and I thought it was very fitting for a time of thanksgiving:

“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, let Israel say so -” Psalm 124:1

As you read that verse, substitute yourself into its words:

“If it had not been the Lord who was on my side, let (your name here) say so – ”

Every single one of us are blessed beyond measure by the Lord.  There is no way to even begin to count all of the ways He has protected us, guided us, strengthened us, comforted us, helped us, directed us, fought for us…and the list goes on and on and on.   Where any of us would be without Him being on our side is a very scary thing to consider.  As you consider all of the things you have to be thankful for tomorrow, don’t forget to thank Him for the infinite number of ways He has been on your side.
