Psalms 124:1


The Bible says in Psalm 124:1-8,  If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;[2] If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:[3] Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:[4] Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:[5] Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.[6] Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.[7] Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.[8] Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth. In this Psalm the believer recognizes how much the Lord has helped him. God constantly protects us. Unfortunately, there is a lot of hatred in this world. If you serve Jesus, you will have enemies. But one of the many benefits of knowing Christ as Savior is that He will protect you as long as He has something for you to do for Him in this life. As it says in verse eight, He created heaven and earth by His mighty power, and so He can certainly use His power to protect us from mere humans.
