Meditations in the Psalms
The wicked are all around us; we must face them daily. The important issue is not to follow them – don’t go where they go – don’t do what they do! Verse 5 clearly says, “they regard not the works of the LORD.” This is a prayer for God’s help and protection, and at the same time, emphasizes our need of trusting in Him.
- His cry to the Lord – verses 1-2
- His call for God’s vengeance – verses 3-5
- His confidence in the Lord’s strength – verses 6-9
These words are what we need to hear every day – “my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped.” Never forget it!
Verse for Meditation
Verse 7 – “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise Him.”
“Thank You, Lord, for Your help and strength when I am so weak and confused, failing to see Your purposes in my life and experiences.”
