Ps 56, 120. 14-142 Words that can heal
David is running for his life, but he also knows this truth: No one can harm him unless God allows it. “in God I trust; I am not afraid. What can mere men do to me.” [Ps 56:11] The Apostle Paul echoed those same thoughts in his 8th chapter of Romans: “If God is for us, who can be against us?” [Rom 8:31] Is this how I face adversaries? While I wait for the Lord to act, do I pray for God to put a guard over my mouth?
David’s prayer should be ours: “Do not let me have evil desires or participate in sinful activities with men who behave wickedly.” [Ps 141:4]
Today if you face an adversary as David did, read and meditate on these psalms.
