I will bring them back

Psalm 68:19-23 (JDV)

Psalm 68:19 Blessed be the Lord! Day after day he bears our burdens; God is our rescue. Selah.
Psalm 68:20 Our God is a God of rescue, and escape from death belongs to Yahveh my Lord.
Psalm 68:21 Surely God crushes the heads of his enemies, the hairy brow of one who goes on in his guilty acts.
Psalm 68:22 The Lord said, “I will bring them back from Bashan; I will bring them back from the depths of the sea
Psalm 68:23 so that your foot may wade in blood and your dogs’ tongues may have their share from the enemies.”

I will bring them back

Two major threats against Israel are highlighted in today’s text: the battles against kings on the way to Canaan (Og, king of Bashan was an example) and the ordeal that ended by God parting the Red Sea and protecting Israel as they walked through the parted waters. The point was, in both of these cases the miracle happened because God had said “I will bring them back” (22).

Christian, are you facing an ordeal right now? Are you facing an enemy which is certain to overpower you? Listen to these words from our deliverer God: “I will bring them back.” He does not promise to keep you from battling the enemy. But he does promise rescue.

Lord, thank you for going with us into battle, and promising to bring us back.
