The Psalmist considers thankfulness to God from a different angle this morning. He asks and answers the question, “What IF God were not for us?” “What would life be like, if God were NOT on our side?” The Psalmist is very clear – it would not be pretty for the nation of Israel! It also would not be pretty for the believer in Jesus Christ. The fact that God is for us, should cause us to pause and thank God for His great love, interest, and care for us in our lives. What would our lives be like without God’s intervention? None of us should ever want to find out.
