Psalms 58-65

What does it say?
The wicked begin speaking lies from birth and their words are like venom. David asks God to shatter the teeth in the mouths of the wicked. The righteous will rejoice when God judges the wicked. The wicked scoff and do not believe that God sees the things that they do. David prays for God to destroy the wicked in wrath. The wicked are like dogs who growl and search for food at night, but David will praise God because God is his strength and his stronghold. God made the people feel hardship but David trusts that God loves and will deliver his people. All of the nations belong to God. It appears that God has rejected them but David trusts in God’s deliverance. David has trusted in God; therefore, he asks to dwell in God’s tent forever. David knows that God has heard his vows and trusts that God will prolong his life, that he may fulfill his vows. David trust in God alone to save him. The wicked thrust down and delight in falsehood. David trusts only in God and encourages the people to trust God. Do not trust in the things you have or don’t have. Power and lovingkindness belong to God. David has seen the lovingkindness of God; therefore, he thirsts for God alone. When David lies down at night he meditates on God. Those who seek his life and lie will be destroyed. David prays for deliverance from secret enemies. God knows what is in their heart; therefore, David trusts God to destroy his secret enemies. Blessed is he whom God chooses to bring near. God is in control of his creation. And God takes care of his creation. 

What does it mean?
Trust alone in the power, knowledge, understanding and wisdom of God. The wicked walk the earth killing and lying. God knows what is in the heart and mind of everyone. God chooses whom he will bring close to him. He whom God chooses is blessed indeed. He who has seen the lovingkindness of God, loves God; therefore, nothing on earth will satisfy him. He does not trust in riches or anything else. He trust only in God to save him. He understands that God sees everything; therefore, he trust that God has his back. God will destroy the wicked but his lovingkindness is given to those whom God chooses. If you are chosen by God you will love and adore him.

What shall I do?
I have seen the lovingkindness of God. He has chosen me, a sinner, as his child. I have seen the lovingkindness of God. He has drawn me to himself in Jesus Christ. Therefore, I shall meditate on God when I lie down and when I get up. I shall not trust in the things that I have, nor what I don’t have, but I will trust in God alone to deliver me from sin and death. “God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (Jn 3:16)
