Psalm Fifty Four is Our Stated Intention

Is it deja vu if you remember when you did it before? We are standing on our path this day at the top of a high pass ready to step onto new ground. Behind us are all the paths that have brought us to this place, and ahead is a new world. We have seen the great city and now we must see ourselves back in the world of men trying to remember the truth.

Our next step is like psalm 25, walking out into a relatively peaceful place where we strive to earn our daily bread and pick our way through more choices than ever. Only now, we are in a different day with better vision and greater understanding. There was much action in Psalm 53 and there is a meditation in this one.





54. A Decision Taken


Save me, O God, by your name and judge me with your strength.

Hear my prayer, O Lord, give ear to the words of my mouth.

Strangers have risen up against me, and hard godless men seek after my soul every day.

Look on me: God is my helper and the Lord is with those who lift up my soul.

He shall reward the evil of my enemies, He will cut them off with the truth.

I freely give all I have to You, O Lord, I will praise your good name.

You deliver me out of trouble and I have seen your desire upon my enemies.





It only takes one glance at the world to see that it is a dangerous place. Strangers and godless men are everywhere, doing pretty much what they please and it is awful to see but it has always been that way. Our present moment is the very best in many ways that this world has ever been. At the same time there is more which is false, maybe more than ever before. On balance, itís probably about the same as it ever was. The choice is always up to us: we ask the Lord for help or we decide to do it on our own.

The power of God is seen in his creation and only that power can reward the evil our enemies inflict. Vengeance, and even justice is not our job: we are giving, always, because so much has been given to us. We do this freely because we are planting seeds and we know we will live long enough to see them grow.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
