Psalm 123 & 124: The Soul

Verse of the Day: (124:4) Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:

1.   The Servant (123:1-4)
Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us. (123:2)

Let us turn our eyes upon God, who creates heavens, the earth and every living creature, as He is our Master and Creator, and we are His servants. Our God shall provide all our needs and fulfil all our desires as we trust Him. Our master or employer on earth may not be perfect but our God is definitely perfect. Let us turn our eyes to Jesus Christ, the perfect Servant, who left the splendour of heaven, where God, His Master, and Him dwell in, and took upon Himself the form of a servant, and humbled Himself in obedience to the death of the cross, the most humiliating way of death, not for His own sins, but for the sins of the whole world. By Jesus’ death, He accomplished His Master’s perfect will. Whoever therefore receives Jesus as his personal Saviour, shall never perish in hell, but have everlasting life with Him in heaven. Let us turn our eyes and wait upon our Master, and His abundant mercy and love shall be upon us now and forever. (Philippians 2:5-11)

2.   The Soul (124:1-5)
Then the proud waters had gone over our soul. (124:5)

At the peak of his reign, King David of Israel, sinned against his holy God and Master, when he committed adultery and murder. Pride took over David’s heart as he succumbed to the lusts of his eyes and flesh and pride of life. God then humbled and chastised David that he truly repented of his wretched soul of proud waters. (2 Samuel 11-12) Indeed, like God delivered Israel from the proud waters of the mighty and overwhelming Red sea and River Jordan, He shall also deliver our souls from the proud waters of the devil’s hell. (Isaiah 43:1-3) Let us truly guard our souls that they are filled with God’s love and humility, as what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his precious soul to the devil, and be forever cast together with him in fiery hell. (Matthew 16:24-28)

3.   The Snare (124:6-9)
Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. (124:7)

Though God loves and saves us yet we are still struggling with this life of toils and snares, because the devil is out to destroy God’s perfect plan and precious people. The devil will do all he can in his wiles and deceits to ensnare our souls to sin and rebel against God. Let us therefore follow God and His righteousness, faith, love and peace, and He shall surely deliver and help us escape the devil’s evil snare and deception. (2 Timothy 2:22-26)

Prayer of the Day:

Dearest God, thank You for saving my soul from hell to Your heaven as I trust You.
