"My enemies cannot speak a truthful word.
Their deepest desire is to destroy others.
Their talk is foul, like the stench from an open grave.
Their tongues are filled with flattery.
O God, declare them guilty.
Let them be caught in their own traps.
Drive them away because of their many sins,
for they have rebelled against you.
But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
let them sing joyful praises forever.
Spread your protection over them,
that all who love your name may be filled with joy.
For you bless the godly, O LORD;
you surround them with your shield of love."
David had enemies. Here he is in trouble, but he goes to God. David worships, expresses his fear and anger toward his enemies, and affirms what his trust in God means: joy, protection, and blessings. Who are your enemies at this moment? Are you praying for them—after taking time to worship and acknowledge God? Don't be afraid to express yourself honestly, but do it in the context of your trust in God.
