Mighty and Merciful

“O my Strength, I will watch for you, for you, O God, are my fortress. My God in his steadfast love will meet me; God will let me look in triumph on my enemies” (Psalm 59:9-10). This is another psalm of David where he pleads with God for deliverance from the machinations of men. The arrogance of the wicked is countered, and overcome, by the saving might of God. Despite the plots of evil men, David knows confidence because of God’s merciful perfection; thrice in the psalm this twin theme is repeated, of God as a secure fortress and of God’s “steadfast love”, on which His servant relies (vv.9-10, 16, 17).

Steel yourself in the blessed comfort of God’s strength and mercy. The Lord is able to save from any situation, to defend against any danger; the Lord is kind to those who call on Him, and compassionate to His children. Take refuge in God Almighty.
