A Believer’s Prayer (Part 2)

We are still looking at Psalm 56.  Last time, we saw the problems of the believer.  Now, we can see the protection of God.  Our prayers should reflect our knowledge of God’s protection on our life.  God’s protection is real.  Verse 7 says, “Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.”  God remembers His promise of protection.  Verse 8 says, “Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?”  God’s protection takes a response from us.  He has promised to protect His people, yet still wants us to ask.  It is like having a pavilion or canopy to get in out of the rain, yet choosing to stand out in the downpour.  The pavilion doesn’t move.  All we have to do is go stand under it.  Don’t fail to seek and then respond to the protection of God.  Verse 9 says, “When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.”  God responds to our cry for protection with the perfect solution to our difficult situation.  Accept His response today and remember, God is “for you.”
