Psalm 64

Psalm 64 has David facing a crisis that made him cry out to God. It is impossible to connect this Psalm to a specific event in David’s life with certainty.  But we can know that he is facing a challenging time and is yet again under the attack of his enemies.  “Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint; preserve my life from dread of the enemy”.  David cries out to God for his protection.  No man is helpless who can look up.  We always have an opportunity to seek God and experience His power and love.

The enemy has secret plots and hidden agendas.  They were coming at David from all sides.  “They hold fast to their evil purpose; they talk of laying snares secretly, thinking, who can see them”?  The enemy never gives up – they hold on to their desires and purpose to attack and destroy.  They believe no one can see them, and while we may not, God always does.  He always knows what is happening.  He not only sees, but is able to deal with the evil that they bring.

God is our protector.  “God shoots his arrow at them; they are wounded suddenly. They are brought to ruin, with their own tongues turned against them; all who see them will wag their heads”.  If we cry out to Him and seek his protection, He is more than able to deal with the enemy.  One shot of His arrow will destroy them.  God never loses that battle.  The question is whether we will seek Him and cry out for His power and protection.  Far too often we try to take on the enemy attacks by ourselves, rather than seeking God’s protection.

God is the victor.  And the whole world knows.  “Then all mankind fears; they tell what God has brought about and ponder what he has done. Let the righteous one rejoice in the Lord and take refuge in him! Let all the upright in heart exult”!  We need to let the world know that God is God and He is able to not only protect, but defeat evil and any enemy.  We can seek refuge and protection in Him.  He will give us the victory and we will be able to rejoice and have happy hearts.
