Psalm 64-Praying for Protection

Truth for Truckers” *April 4, 2014* Psalm 64 “Praying for Protection”

      David’s pattern of calling on God as soon as trouble arises occurs here in Psalm 64. He cries to God for protection from the wicked workers of iniquity:
I. Four Actions of the Afflicted (v.1, 2)
   1. Hear my voice O God
   2. Preserve my life from fear of the enemy
   3. Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked   
   4. Hide me from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity
II. Six Actions of the Enemy (v.3-6)
   1. They whet their tongue like a sword
   2. They bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words
   3. Suddenly do they shoot at him and fear not
   4. They encourage themselves in an evil matter
   5. They commune of laying snares privily
   6. The search out iniquities
III. One Action from God is all it takes (v.7-10)
   1. But God shall shoot at them
   2. They make their own tongue to fall upon themselves
   3. All that see them shall flee away
   4. All men shall fear and shall declare the work of God for they shall wisely consider His doings
   5. The righteous shall be glad in the LORD and shall trust in Him and all the upright in heart shall glory

     How does this apply to us in our daily walk with the Lord? This Psalm is a faith-building account for the Believer. We know that we can rely on God for protection when we are in a situation of conflict with the wicked or those who are not saved. We just need to call upon God and expect Him to take care of the situation for all it takes is one action from Him to resolve any conflict! When we expect Him to act and wait on Him to do it His way, our faith is put in gear and God has His reason to move on our behalf…”For without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6)
