If the LORD had not been on our side
when people attacked us,
they would have swallowed us alive
when their anger flared against us…
The psalmist wrote, “If the LORD had not been on our side when people attacked us, They would have swallowed us alive.” In every generation, someone tries to destroy the Jews, yet every time the plot is foiled. The psalmist continued, “The snare has been broken and we have escaped” (v.7). Just when the Jews seem trapped and slated for destruction, the trap is broken and the Jews are saved. God steps in and that is why the Jews are still here today. God is for Israel. When you need some inspiration or encouragement to believe that anything is possible with God, you need not look any further than Israel. If Israel can beat the odds, so can you. If Israel can receive miracles, so can you. The God of Israel can do anything. Never lose hope.
