God Will Protect Your Life from the Enemy – Psalm 64:1

Hear my voice, God, in my complaint;
Protect my life from dread of the enemy.

God Will Protect Your Life from the Enemy – Psalm 64:1

Hear my voice, God, in my complaint;
Protect my life from dread of the enemy.

Understanding Psalm 64

The psalmist David wrote Psalm 64 whilst living in fear. At the time, King Saul was seeking to take his life in hopes of preventing him from becoming king. After David became the king, his own son sought to take his life in order to steal the throne. But through the divinely inspired words of David’s despair, the Holy Ghost reminds us today what we are to do in times of great uncertainty … who it is we are to turn too.

When difficulties arise — and they will — we must always lean further into God. While the wicked raged against David, he kept before him faith in the power of the Almighty. He knew that only God could turn back the attacks of the enemy. Psalm 64:5-7 states,“They make firm for themselves an evil purpose; they talk of setting snares secretly; they say,‘Who can see them?’ They devise injustices, saying, ‘We are ready with a well-conceived plot’; for the inward thoughts and the heart of a person are deep. But God will shoot an arrow at them; suddenly they will be wounded.” In other words, the Lord has the power and authority to defeat any evil that prevails against His majesty or His people.

We must never forget that our Father in Heaven – the Creator of the universe and He who is above all things – sees, knows, and has in the palm of His hand all things. So as long as we put our faith, hope and trust in Him (and not the world), His goodness will triumph over any evil in our lives. And it won’t stop there either. He will also one day win a mighty victory – the battle of all battles – that all people will themselves witness. And when that time comes, all those who have put their trust in Him will no doubt be overjoyed (and relieved!) that they had. As it states in Holy Scripture, the uncompromisingly righteous, those who remain in “right standing” with the Lord, will one day rejoice (Ps 32:1-11).

While mankind cannot prevent evil from being evil, he can trust the God who has power over it. No matter what is going on in your life today, lean into the Lord who loves you with all of your heart, all of your mind, and all of your soul. Commit your ways to Him and trust as David did that the Lord will fight your every battle for you – and will win! He already has and He will forevermore.

Prayer for Victory and Protection

Lord, I lift the flag of praise high
and declare that You are my King.
I walk boldly forward into kingdom lands
and trust in You as my fortress.
I stand strong rooted in the goodness
of Your love and courageously and

confidently draw near to You.
I ride triumphantly upon Your grace
and thank You that the battle
has already been won.
You are my King, my Fortress, my

Strength and my redeemer.
Lord, I lift Your Name high above

all others and I worship You!

It is in Your good and
Holy Name I pray, amen.

For Meditation

Some trust in their war chariots
and others in their horses,
but we trust in the power
of the Lord our God.
Such people will stumble and fall,
but we will rise and stand firm.
Give victory to the King, O Lord;
answer us when we call.”

Psalm 20:8-9
