The name of the Lord is my help. He breaks the snare (trap) of the fowler, helping me escape from those who spread a torrent of rage. Jesus is like Noah’s ark, providing shelter and even salvation so I am not overcome.
The distressing moments of life seek to crush me. Do I trust God, the Father? If so, then my feelings and responses should be bathed in peace, knowing He has control. Instead my flesh and my heart fail but He is still the strength of my heart.
Is God on our side? Certainly! There is a way to escape as a bird and fly away but it does require that I recognize the snare as a trap.
Sitting in the snare and enjoying its surroundings will not aid me to recognize my Lord. Because I have distressing feelings and responses full of unrest, I will be ready to escape. When I see the One on my side, I will lift my wings and fly to a place of safety.
The One who made heaven and earth is not only willing to help but able to deliver.- Teresa

A Song of Ascents. Of David.
124 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side—
let Israel now say—
2 if it had not been the Lord who was on our side
when people rose up against us,
3 then they would have swallowed us up alive,
when their anger was kindled against us;
4 then the flood would have swept us away,
the torrent would have gone over us;
5 then over us would have gone
the raging waters.
6 Blessed be the Lord,
who has not given us
as prey to their teeth!
7 We have escaped like a bird
from the snare of the fowlers;
the snare is broken,
and we have escaped!
8 Our help is in the name of the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
