Psalm 124 – God our Help

“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us”-AW Tozer

Psalm 124 is an instance of a person who digs deeply into the trouble and finds there the presence of the God who is on our side. – Eugene Peterson

The God who is on your side – he loves you (1-2)

Story of God’s love – God’s never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, always and forever love. – Jesus Storybook Bible

The God who Rescues – he is gracious (6)

All the facts add up to doom. There is no way out. And then, unaccountably, there is a way out. The snare breaks and the bird escapes. Deliverance is a surprise. Rescue is a miracle. Oh, blessed be GOD! . . . He didn’t abandon us defenseless.” How God wants us to sing like this! Christians are not fussy moralists who cluck their tongues over a world going to hell; Christians are people who praise the God who is on our side.” – Eugene Peterson

Colossians 1:13 – He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins

1 Timothy 1:15 – The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost

Ephesians 1:4-5 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespass, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved.

The God who is your helper – he is powerful – (8)

Hebrews 13:6So we con confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”
