Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
If the Lord had not been on our side …
In these opening words of this chapter by King David, he thinks back to what would have happened to Israel had the Lord not been on their side. He said they would have been swallowed up by their enemies if the Lord had not been on their side. The flood would have overwhelmed them. The waters would have swept them away. In other words, if the Lord had not been on their side, they would have been destroyed!
Why don’t you and I talk about what would have happened to us through the years if the Lord had not been on our side. Well, wait a minute. I’ll just offer my insights to my own life, and then you can compare with me. If the Lord had not been on my side, I’d have married the wrong person for sure. I would have been a failure in my chosen profession. People would have disliked me. If the Lord had not been on my side, for sure, I’d be dead right now!! You probably think, “Rich, why are you talking like that?” Because I’m nothing without Jesus. If you only knew the hundreds of times it could have gone the other way for me, but Jesus was on my side, and I’m here today. I can’t give the Lord enough praise or thanksgiving ever! All I know for sure is this, “I Really Need The Lord On My Side!”
I’m so grateful this AM that You are on my side. I can’t count the near disasters I would have encountered in my life if You had not protected me. I really need You now more than ever. Amen
