Hear the right, O Lord, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.
2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.
3 Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
5 Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.
6 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.
7 Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.
8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,
9 From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
10 They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;
12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
13 Arise, O Lord, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:
14 From men which are thy hand, O Lord, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
This psalm is among the group of psalms that speak about the human condition and what God does in and through us when we cry out to Him. It isn't every day that you might get to read a psalm but rest assured that this one will speak to your human condition, your need for God, what God does for those who are faithful to Him, and much more.
Don't we serve a great God?
I can't tell you how many times in my life, when all the chips were down that God came through for me and helped me. There was one time when I thought that I would be evicted from my apartment, and I found myself praying all night because everything was out of my control.
Have you ever felt like that? Like everything was out of your control? Well, I sure did. But, as many human ordeals go, God came through for me in high fashion.
A huge snowstorm came and stopped the eviction. I was later able to acquire the funds needed to pay rent and remain in my apartment.
But, had it not been for God I would have been down and out but God came through for me and He will for you as you put your trust in Him.
Our prayer for you is that as you read these Chapters that the Lord will speak to your heart and give you the reassurance and hope that you need to keep on pressing through, not looking at how the wicked may seemingly prosper, until God brings you to the place He promised you.
