Psalm 54:7 “For he has delivered me”
This psalm was written when David was betrayed by Ziphites. David was running away from Saul because Saul was trying to kill him. David when he reached the place where Ziphities were staying, people there informed Saul. When David came to know of this, (Psalm 54) made a prayer to God and that is this psalm. His prayer had two portions.
Petition: David directly told his need; Psalm 54:1 “Save me, O God, by your name; vindicate me by your might” He knew the power in the Lord’s name, and Lord’s mercy to intervene.
David asked the Lord to hear and listen to his words. Psalm 54:2 “Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth” Are we so discouraged that we are not even calling on the Lord. No way out, then Lord is the only way.
Praise: David then said, even if enemies come to attack, Lord will help and sustain. Psalm 54:4 “Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me” Irrespective of our situation Lord will help and will sustain
David was sure, even if troubles are too many and too tough, for sure Lord will deliver. Psalm 54:7 “For he has delivered me from all my troubles” Praise God for the surety of your faith
Prayer: My Lord, My Lord; my eyes are on you. My hope is in you. Amen.
