(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.”LET’S TALKThe Lord can solve whatever challenges you may be facing right now, no matter how difficult they seem. Maybe you’re experiencing some difficulty with your studies, and you feel overwhelmed.Or perhaps, you’re concerned about that nagging situation in your family, and you don’t know what to do. It may even seem as though the devil has you drowning in the mire of a terrible habit. Don’t despair! The Lord is with you to bring you out of that trouble.The Bible says, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all” (Psalm 34:19). All you have to do is put your trust in Him. 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 that 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 to swallow you up (Psalm 124:6). He’s strong and on your side to help you and bring you out today.Go DeeperPsalm 32:7, Jeremiah 15:21Speak:No weapon formed against me will prosper, and every tongue that rises against me in judgment is condemned already.
