Prayer Proved by God’s Intervention, PT. 2

“The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.” - Psalms 126:3

Throughout the Psalms we find recitals of Jehovah’s great works for His chosen people, Israel. Many lengthy Psalms, such as 73, 78, 89, 105, 106 and 107 describe God’s intervening on Israel’s behalf to protect her from all enemies. Psalm 126 is a short Psalm of praise for God’s protection, deliverance and intervention.

Without God’s intervention and hand of protection, Israel would not exist. Romans 9:29 tells us, quoting Isaiah 1:9, that “Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.” Likewise, for the believer in Christ we know that without Him we would likewise perish (Luke 13:3).

Romans 10:13 tells us “that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” This is a quotation of Joel 2:32 which spoke of God’s deliverance of the Jewish remnant in Jerusalem. God intervened for ancient Israel; He intervenes for them today (Rom. 11:26) and in the future (Joel 2:28-3:2); and He intervenes for the Christian at all times, an always present strength in time of trouble! (Psalm 37:39)

· Is God’s work in your life real to you?

· As you study God’s Word, make a point to note how God is at work in the lives of the people spoken of. “It is no secret, what God can do; what He has done for others, He will do for you.” (It Is No Secret, by Stuart Hamblen)
