Ps 64-66 It is so reassuring to know that God hears our voices and our prayers. As he opens Ps 64, he says, “Hear my voice, O God, Preserve my life, Hide me.” We can go to God and pray those exact words when we face the enemies of our souls. This is such a great comfort as the evil one is all around us, and we face their taunts day in and day out, yet our God is greater, mightier, and ever-present.
There is an old saying: Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me lives in an ivory tower! Sticks and stones genuinely do hurt, and words hurt as well, yet God hears, God sees, and God will respond with His protection. “the Lord, ‘will be a wall of fire around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.'” [Zech 2:5]
Today you may face the enemy’s plethora of words. They are just words. Take them to God, who hears, preserves, and hides His children.
