QT – Psalm 54

Vs. 7, “For he has delivered me from all my troubles, and my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes.” This is an encouraging psalm, for David had his prayer answered! David was hiding in the region of Ziph, but was betrayed and Saul was informed. David would have have many close calls in his life. Saul would prove to be an unrelenting foe. But, God is bigger than any enemy that may rise up against his people!

Regarding application…Enemy Against Us. Vs. 3, “Strangers are attacking me; ruthless men seek my life-men without regard for God.” How true of a statement this is! Jesus reminded us that don’t be suprised if the world hates us, because it hated him first (John 15:18). As a naive young Christian who just came to God…I found that out real fast. I wore my bright neon colored Christian t-shirt to school that had in huge lettering “Jesus Rules” on the front. Literraly within seconds of walking in the hall, people began smirking and laughing at my shirt. When young Christians attend college, many College Professors and students will challenge your faith in God! This is a truly a dog eat dog world we live in. My encouragement to you is not to be in dismay when the enemy comes your way! Look at it as perhaps a compliment because the enemy sees you as a real threat! Always turn in prayer and God will provide a way out! He did it for David…and the same God will do it for you!
