Pilgrim Psalms (7)

To punish the Israelites for their disobedience, God allowed them to be taken captive by other countries. Psalm 126 is talking about a time in the future when God will bring the Israelites back to their homeland of Israel.
When the Israelites return home, they will be very happy. Why? Because “the Lord did a great thing for us” (verse 3b). They will again plant seeds and raise crops. All of Israel will be happy that God has rescued them.
Maybe you have felt like the Israelites felt when they were in captivity — you have been sick or faced some kind of struggle in your life. When that happens, we can always pray and ask God to take care of us.
Trust God today. He knows everything that is happening in your life, and He will help you with your struggles.
