What does Psalm 124:8 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 124:8

Our help [is] in the name of the Lord
This is the conclusion the church draws from the scene of Providence in her favour; this is the instruction she learns from hence, that her help is in the Lord only, and not in any creature; and that it is right to put her trust and confidence in the Lord for it, and only to expect it from him whose name is in himself; and is a strong tower to flee unto for safety, ( Proverbs 18:10 ) . The Targum is,

``in the name of the Word of the Lord;''

in the Messiah; in whom the name of the Lord is, his nature and perfections; and in whom help is found, being laid upon him, ( Exodus 23:21 ) ( Hosea 13:9 ) ( Psalms 89:19 ) ;

who made heaven and earth;
and therefore must be able to help his people, and to do more for them than they are able to ask or think: for what is it he cannot do that made the heavens and the earth, and all that is in them? see ( Psalms 121:1 Psalms 121:2 ) .
