Deliver me from my enemies, O my God;
protect me from those who rise up against me;
deliver me from those who work evil,
and save me from bloodthirsty men.
When we rely on the Lord, he is the one who will protect us. We need not worry about others who seek to do us harm. Yet, sometimes they do succeed. When they do, we can rest in the knowledge that it will be worked together along with everything else in our lives for our own good. God uses the pain in our life to mold us into whom we’re meant to be.
