Psalm Saturday (7b)

O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me: Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.  O LORD my God, if I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands; If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; ; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy: )  Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust.  Selah.

Psalm 7:1-5

In the first verse of this Psalm, the Psalmist reminds us that he is putting his trust in the Lord.  He then asks the Lord to reward his faith and save him from all them that persecute him.  The Psalmist understood what is at stake in this battle.  We need to be sure that we understand it too.

“…Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.”  The Psalmist understood that, if the Lord does not save him and deliver him, there will be no one who can help him.  If the Lord doesn’t help him, there will be no help.  Without the Lord, his life is going to be destroyed.  The same is true for us.  Without the help of the Lord, our lives are going to be wrecked and annihilated.  Stronger people than us have had their lives destroyed because they did not put their trust in the Lord.

Who are we trusting in today?  Is our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ or is it in ourselves?  The answer to that question is vital.  The right answer can help and deliver us; the wrong answer can destroy us.
