Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

Psalm 126:1-6 NLT

[1] When the LORD brought back his exiles to Jerusalem, it was like a dream!

[2] We were filled with laughter, and we sang for joy. And the other nations said, “What amazing things the LORD has done for them.”

[3] Yes, the LORD has done amazing things for us! What joy!

[4] Restore our fortunes, LORD, as streams renew the desert.

[5] Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy.

[6] They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest.

Reflection . . .

Imagine having been in captivity your whole life and then brought back to the land of your ancestors. For Israel, it was certainly like a dream come true! They could say with sincere hearts, “What amazing things the Lord has done!”

The Lord has rescued us, those who believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour! He has provided a way for us to be made right with God through His sacrifice on the cross for our sins. When we realize just how great a work He has done for us, we too can say, “What amazing things the Lord has done for us!’ He has rescued us from sin and death. He has saved us for His own purposes, to be His people, and set apart for His glory!
