Psalm 25:19 “See how my enemies have increased and how fiercely they hate me!”
[Satan, who is the great angry dragon as in the picture below, is always after me, seeking to trap me, to trip me up, even to take me out–if you, Lord, gave permission. I am too weak to stand against him and the people he uses.
But I praise you that you are very aware of my situation and are protecting me moment by moment in your great Power. As your Word says, “The angel of the Lord camps around those who fear Him and delivers them” (Ps. 34:7).]
Psalm 25:20 “Guard my life and rescue me; let me not be put to shame,”
[Every day I must appeal to you, Lord Jesus, to rescue me from my powerful enemies, from my foes who are too strong for me. Thank you that, instead of shame, you offer us honor–the honor of being your children, of belonging to your Kingdom, of joining you in your work, of keeping on the armor and standing against the enemy, and of living with and for you.]
“for I take refuge in you.”
[This is my part, I must flee to you, my High Tower, my Rock of Salvation, instead of trusting in myself. I do this by recognizing my weakness and need, and offering praise and thanksgiving for whatever comes, asking for your help and obeying what I know to be true.
Help me today, Lord, to consistently take refuge in you, keeping on the armor, under girding all by prayer and doing what I know to be right.
