TOPIC: A PLEA FOR MERCY

TEXT: Psalm 57: 1-11(KJV)
57:1. Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.
57:2. I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.
57:3. He shall send from heaven, and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.
57:4. My soul is among lions: and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
57:5. Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.

57:6. They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah.
57:7. My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.
57:8. Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.
57:9. I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.
57:10. For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.
57:11. Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the earth.

Anglican Daily Fountain 21st February 2024 STUDY:

In this Psalm, David pleads for God’s mercy because he trusts in Him. He seeks for God’s protection from his calamities. He believes that God will send His mercy and truth to save him from those who want to destroy him. He also insists that his heart is steadfast in the Lord and that he will praise God among the peoples and sing to Him among the nations. Twice, he exalts and glorifies God for who He is.

In the Christian race, one is bound to experience difficulties, calamities, reproaches, and enmity from people. In all these cases, one should put one’s trust in the Lord, cry to Him for help, run the Christian race with endurance, and look unto Jesus (Heb. 12: 2). Learn to first cry to God when you face serious challenges, before trying other options. Make God your priority by studying His word daily, praising His name and calling on Him in your prayers. He will surely deliver you. Are you going through a crisis in your life, family, work, church or country? Take it to the Lord in prayer. Make your plea for mercy and your situation will change for the better.

PRAYER: Precious Father; may Your mercy shine upon me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
