Daily in the Psalms : Psalm 7

PSALM - CHAPTER SEVEN

A Song Of Prayer For Vindication. David had been falsely accused and he sings this song to the Lord for vindication.

A SONG OF PETITION

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. Psalms 7:1-2

The key words here are “save me” and “deliver me.” David did all that he could do; he took refuge in the Lord. As children of God, we have someone to turn to when we are wronged. David did what every Christian ought to do, turn it over to the One that can save and deliver. If we take these matters in our own hands, we will not see the salvation and deliverance that He can bring. There is nothing wrong with asking God to make wrongs right. After we have searched our own heart and know that we have not sinned, then we have access to God for deliverance and protection. Those without God have no Divine protection, they must fend for themselves, but we are not so. Thank God that we have some place to hide and take refuge. The Lord is our soul’s refuge. We have an enemy, the Devil, which is a roaring Lion, seeking whom he may destroy. We see so many that are alone, without God, destroyed by this enemy. Just because we are saved does not mean that there will never be peril in our lives, quite the opposite is true. But because we are saved, we have a safe refuge in the Lord. When it seems that there is none to deliver, we can call on Him. God help us to know and use the song of petition!

A SONG OF PROTESTATION

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. Psalms 7:3-5

The accusation that was made against him was repelling; it was against the truth. David called for the wrath of God upon his own head if the accusation was true. God help us all to have this kind of confidence as we go to God when we are wronged. David was sure because he was innocent. Too many times we have to pray, “yes, but.” David did not have any “buts” in his prayer. He knew the truth and he was sure that God knew the truth. He asked God to act on the truth. I am glad that we can call on God for mercy when we are wrong, but I am also glad that we can call on Him for justice when we are wronged. Again, this is not an admission of guilt, it is a dare for the lie to prevail over the truth. The word “Selah” that comes at the end of verse five means “to stop or rest” like a stop in music. When we see that word, we are to stop and consider the thought. David says, if I am persecuted, if my life is torn down, if my honor lies in the dust, then the lie has been victorious over the truth. God is the Proclaimer and the protector of truth; He will not let a lie have the victory. I know this seems a little presumptuous of David, but we must consider that he was not relying on anything within himself, he was relying of the character of God. God did not have to do anything for David, he was trusting that God would act for truth. As long as he was truthful and innocent, he could trust the actions of God, no matter what they were. Too many of these modern heretics claim that God will give the victory, just because we ask. They wrap themselves in lies and expect God to protect them. God does not protect lies; He protects truth, His Truth. God does not have to act for us; He acts for Himself. The character of God is to proclaim and protect the truth. If we stand in truth, we can have confidence in God, He is truth.

SONG OF PLEADING

Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded. So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high. The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me. Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins. Psalms 7:6-9

David calls for God, Jehovah, to arise and defend him, because he stood for the truth of God.

David Pleaded For Action Against The Wicked

I wonder how many could call for the righteous judgment of God and include themselves in that judgment. That is what David did. David said, judge my enemies, just as you said you would, and judge me by the same standard. What a blessed position to be able to stand in the midst of the wrath of God and have confidence that all will be well. We can do that because we know that God is a just God. He will not make a mistake in His judgment. Those that are guilty will be punished; those that are innocent will be protected. In the sad day that we live, it would be wonderful if someone in leadership would stand and say, investigate all you want, I am willing to stand in just judgment. We need a David today!

David Pleaded For The Annihilation Of Wickedness

This was a powerful prayer, David asked for wickedness to come to an end. He knew that the Judge, God, was against sin and in His hands the innocent are safe. Those that are right with God have power and they can pray powerful prayers. In this do-as-you-please world, it is no wonder we have so few that know the true power of prayer.
