Psalm 14:6 “You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge.”
[Ungodly people prey on the poor instead of praying to God. But when the poor turn to you, Lord, you are their help and protection. You are faithful, you are good and you are powerful. As it says in Psalm 68:6, “God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.”]
Psalm 14:7 “Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!”
[And it did come from Israel, from Judah, brought by Jesus, who was a Jew!]
“When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!”
[Yes, the first believers, who were all Jewish, as well as we gentiles who are your children, have rejoiced and will rejoice in our salvation!
And we can continue to rejoice in your daily ongoing practical protection and provision, Lord Jesus. You lead us out of our personal prisons, further up and further into your glorious Kingdom. Truly, you are our Good Shepherd and we will not lack anything we need, as we follow you in the ups and downs of life.]
