In Psalm 69 David describes the fact that people hate him and they hate him, because of he is the Lord’s servant. He asks the Lord to save him from his enemies, because of the Lord’s lovingkindness and compassion. David even asks the Lord to curse his enemies. The Psalm ends in hope as David praises the Lord and looks to the fact that one day the Lord will strike down all his enemies and will set up His kingdom on earth in which His people will dwell. This will be accomplished through Jesus and will established at the 2nd coming of Christ. The line that sticks out to me the most this morning is found in verses 32-33, “You who seek God, let your heart revive. For the Lord hears the needy And does not despise His who are prisoners.” This is a great reminder that the Lord does hear me in my need and in the end will bring me into His perfect Kingdom, because of Jesus. Lord, empower me to live in reliance of You for all things.
