Thursday’s Thought

If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say (Psalm 124:1).
The above quoted verse is the beginning of a discussion of the blessings received from God. If God had not been with Israel, they would have been destroyed by their enemies; if God had not been with Israel, they would have over come by their adversaries; if God had not been with Israel, they would have never reached the heights the obtained.

Let us consider: what if God had not been in our lives?

If God had not been in our lives, we would have never known life. God and God alone is the creator of all things and the giver of life. If there is no God, then there is no you.

If God had not been in our lives, we would have never known hope. God and God alone is the source of true hope. If there is no God, then there is no hope.

If God had not been in our lives, we would have never known salvation. God and God alone is the who makes possible the forgiveness of sins and the salvation of souls. If there is no God, then there is no salvation.

If God had not been in our lives, we would have never known love. God and God alone is love and the origin of love. If there is no God, then there is no love.

If there is no God, then there is no love.If God had not been in our lives, we would have never known peace. God and God alone is the provider of peace. If there is no God, then there is no peace.

Let us make sure that God is first and foremost in our lives, this day and every day.
