HE’S ON YOUR TEAM
(You Won’t Be Swallowed Up)
TO THE BIBLE: Psalm 124:1-3 TLB
“If the Lord had not been on our side (let all Israel admit it), if the Lord had not been on our side, we would have been swallowed alive by our enemies, destroyed by their anger.”
The Lord can solve whatever challenges you may be facing right now, no matter how difficult they seem. Maybe you’re experiencing a problem with your studies in school, and you “feel” swallowed up. Or perhaps, you feel confused, not knowing what to do about that nagging situation in your family. It’s as if the devil has gotten hold of you and has you drowning. Don’t despair! The Lord is with you to bring you out of that trouble.
The Bible says, “The righteous face many troubles, but the LORD rescues them from each and everyone” (Psalm 34:19 NLT). All you have to do is to put your trust in God. Don’t give up. God has made a way of escape for you, and you’re coming out on top of that situation.
Ordinarily, problems could swallow you, but God’s presence with you makes it impossible. God says, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you” (Isaiah 43:2). This is God’s solemn vow to you. This should give you great confidence and assurance that He’ll never allow anyone or anything swallow you up (Psalm 124:6). He’s strong and on your side to help you and bring you out today.
No weapon formed against me will prosper, and every tongue that rises against me in judgment is condemned already. I’ve got perfect knowledge of every situation and every circumstance that I come up against, and I’ve got the wisdom of God to overcome them.
Talk to the Lord; tell Him your heart’s desire and expect that there will be a positive change.
