Psalm 5:11 – Verse of the Day 9/3/13
Psalm 5 is a song of lament, in which David is particularly grieved by the evil speech of those who reject God. The contrast between evil speech that doubts God and righteous speech that honors and respects God is a key theme. Whereas the dishonest person rebels against God (verse 6), this verse teaches that the faithful person seeks God’s protection. God is a source of refuge and protection for those who trust His name.
It is easy to feel vulnerable in this present life. The reality, though, is that we have nothing to fear for God is always with us holding us in His hands. He is our protector and worthy of our trust. As you pray, thank God for His loving care, and ask for the ability to trust Him in all circumstances.
