Anglican Daily Fountain 23rd February 2024 (Devotional Today)

Welcome to Today’s Daily Fountain Devotional of the Anglican Church of Nigeria. Daily Fountain is a daily reading devotional for all Anglicans and Non-Anglicans to read, study, share and discuss the Word of God on a daily basis.

TOPIC: GOD IS MY DEFENCE

TEXT: Psalm 59: 1-17(KJV)
59:1. Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up against me.
59:2. Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.
59:3. For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul: the mighty are gathered against me; not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O LORD.
59:4. They run and prepare themselves without my fault: awake to help me, and behold.

59:5. Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit all the heathen: be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah.
59:6. They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
59:7. Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear?
59:8. But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision.

59:9. Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my defence.
59:10. The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.
59:11. Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord our shield.
59:12. For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak.
59:13. Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah.

59:14. And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
59:15. Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied.
59:16. But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.
59:17. Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy.

Anglican Daily Fountain 23rd February 2024 STUDY:

Our text reveals that the life of the Psalmist is in danger and he asks God to deliver, defend, save, and be awake to help him. He calls on the God of hosts to punish, laugh at, scatter, bring down, consume and utterly destroy the wicked. Twice, he confesses that God is his defence and promises to sing praises to God concerning His power, mercy and strength.

When you are weak you should pray for strength. When pursued, you should seek for shelter or safety. David knew that in a time of adversity, he should wait upon God for his defence. When things get tough in your life, who do you run to? Some people depend on their friends, relatives, titles, position or wealth when faced with challenges. Some even go to idols for power and protection which sooner or later, disappoint them.

Make God your hiding place and He will preserve you in the time of trouble (Psa. 32: 7). Do you feel weak and helpless because of your problems? Take it to the Lord in prayer and He will surprise you. Spend more time daily in reading and studying God’s word and He will be your defence.

PRAYER: Father, I lift my heart to You and make You my hiding place in Jesus’ name. Amen.
