April 9, 2021 – Psalms 68-71

In these Psalms, David is often found crying out to God for protection from his enemies. As king, he would have had many but, over and over again, the Lord delivered the king. However, we need not think that God cares only for the powerful and the connected. Our God is merciful to all who look to him. Consider: “Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation” (68:5) & “For the Lord hears the needy and does not despise his own people who are prisoners” (69:33) & “May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you!” (70:4)


Indeed, all who trust in the Lord can say, “Be to me a rock of refuge, to which I may continually come; you have given the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress” (71:3). All who rest in the Lord can sing, with Fanny Crosby:


A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,

A wonderful Savior to me;

He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,

Where rivers of pleasure I see.

He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,

That shadows a dry, thirsty land;

He hideth my life in the depths of His love,

And covers me there with His hand,

And covers me there with His hand.
