Blogging the Bible Day 130: Psalms 54-56

My margin notes from the Psalms:

The response to this:

Behold, God is my helper;
    the Lord is the upholder of my life.
He will return the evil to my enemies;
    in your faithfulness put an end to them. -Psalm 54:4, 5

and this,

For he has delivered me from every trouble,
    and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies. -Psalm 54:7

Is this…

With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you;
    I will give thanks to your name, O Lord, for it is good. -Psalm 54:6

Not TITHE–freewill offerings are our token of “thanks” to Jesus for everything!


The Bible even speaks to what it feels like to be betrayed by a friend…

For it is not an enemy who taunts me—
    then I could bear it;
it is not an adversary who deals insolently with me—
    then I could hide from him.
13 But it is you, a man, my equal,
    my companion, my familiar friend.
14 We used to take sweet counsel together;
    within God’s house we walked in the throng. -Psalm 55:12-14

What is the solution when this happens?

Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved. -Psalm 55:22

Jesus is a friend that will not forsake even when other friends have!
