Everybody and everything is against me.
They believe that you’re not going to help me this time, Lord.
But I know you are always with me. Because of you I have hope. When I look to you and call out to you, you always answer.
I can sleep at night because you are there to take care of me.
I wake up every morning knowing that you are there to give me strength for the day.
I will not be afraid of anything that comes at me.
Save me once again, O God!
Take out my enemies.
You give me freedom. May your blessing be upon all of us.
This psalm is especially sad because David’s enemy at this time was his own son, Absalom. Absalom’s rebellion brought an enormous amount of pain to David and to David’s family.
Dear Father, Please remove any rebellious spirits within us so that our lives can bring glory to you.
