You Are My Strength, I Watch For You–Psalm 59:9

You Are My Strength, I Watch For You–Psalm 59:9-11

You are my strength, I watch for You;
    you, God, are my fortress,
10 my God on Whom I can rely.

God will go before me
    and will let me gloat over those who slander me.
11 But do not kill them, Lord our shield,
    or my people will forget.
In Your might uproot them
    and bring them down.


God is your strength. He goes before you, knowing exactly what should be done on your behalf. He knows your opposition, and knows how to deal with them. The Lord is your fortress in Whom you can always rely. Do as the psalmist did and “watch for” Him. Wait patiently for Him to act. How He acts and when He acts will be an act of His perfection. Patience is your virtue. Trust Him.
