But God is my helper. The Lord is the one who keeps me alive! May my enemies' plans for evil be turned against them. Do as you promised and put an end to them. Psalm 54: 4-5 NLT
Even when you feel attacked, remember that God is your helper. God gives you life. God fulfills all of God's promises – not always what we want God to do but what God has promised to do.
God can turn our enemies plans and use them against them. We must be careful, however, that we don't become the enemy ourselves. God wants us to follow God, not just to get revenge. God needs our full commitment to God, not to just looking good in the world's eyes. God is not out to make sure we are always #1; that is God's position.
Before you ask for God's help, spend some time thinking about your own mistakes, your own inactions and your own sins. And ask for God's forgiveness.
God, we come asking for your help. But sometimes we need to first take a good look at our own hearts and minds. You are our helper. It is you who gives us life! Thank you! In Jesus' name. Amen.
