~ Psalm 7 ~ Spiritual Journey From The Beginning To The End Of The Psalm ~

Updated on October 7, 2017

There is True Security & Significance in the Lord!

~ Psalm 7 ~ Spiritual Journey From The Beginning To The End Of The Psalm ~

The Psalms are a majestic and marvelous treasure of thanksgiving, accolades, songs and prayers! They are an aggressively uncompromising compendium of forcibly spoken expressions, exuding deep profound emotions! They wonderfully inspire and provoke much thought and personal introspection! They mesmerize and captivate the senses and emotions! There is a deep spiritual fountain of wisdom that pours generously from its contents! There is encouragement while in the midst of trials, tests and temptations. There is conviction for the soul for wandering from the narrow path. There is direction on and to the straight and narrow road as well! There is relief and optimistic expectation to inspire one to continue on despite whatever the situation maybe…

The Psalms contain and endless spiritual reservoir of ecstatic passion that evokes the abiding presence of the Spirit of the Lord!

David once again in this Psalm cries out to the Lord! No doubt He teaches us another lesson of the importance of being transparent with the Lord! There is no thought, word, act nor deed that is hidden from the Lord! Therefore whenever seeking inner healing, cleansing and restoration invite Him into every orifice, joint, vein, cavity, crease, fold and tissue of your being! In order for your mind, heart, body and soul to find Peace one must simply and sincerely surrender! Allow His Holy Spirit to do spiritual surgery to renew your inner man or woman!

The Word of God is endless in its ability to help us through whatever or any situation that is presented to us in life! There is nowhere you can go that God is not there; He is Omnipresent, meaning everywhere! Personally it is hard for me to fathom how one does not believe that the Lord God, Sovereign Creator of the universe at large exists! Yet many still choose to not believe? Or rather fail to admit that He does... There is an overwhelming unexplainable amount of evidence all around us to prove that this is so. However I realize that their spiritual eyes are blinded. They instead elect to see with their carnal senses and not accept the truth of God’s Word!

Those who believe are invited into the family of God! Through faith and believing in Jesus Christ our spiritual eyes are opened! As we grow spiritually we can more and more see more clearly and better comprehend the things of God! Hopefully we sin less and less… Life becomes a continual journey of spiritual growth, discovery, and wonderful revelations!

It was not possible that the blood sacrifices from bulls, lambs, doves, or pigeons of the Old Testament take away the penalty of sin. God therefore sacrificed His only Begotten Son to be the Sacrificial Lamb once and for ALL! Jesus Christ triumphed over death and cancelled the charges of the past, present or future that was against us… He has redeemed us from the curse of sin that separates us from the Lord! He has opened the doorway to the Father! He in fact is the Door! He is our Savior! Praise God for His Love, Grace and mercy that He has shown towards us! As we sincerely seek Him daily we can always find comfort and direction!

This particular song written by David was written during the time he was unjustly accused of trying to kill King Saul! Saul's men vigilantly pursue him so he hides from him… He had the ability to take Saul’s life… But, David did not strike back he instead cleaved to the Lord and found refuge in caves...! During times of great persecution, turmoil, misunderstandings slanderous accusations and despair it is important to seek the face of the Lord! It is not an easy time but know the Lord will direct you around and through it! We can always Trust HIM to work it out for our good in His time! Although difficult it is always best to allow the Lord to fight your battle rather than to strike back… While going through you truly can depend on the Lord, His Word and His precious Holy Spirit!

Wickedness Justly Rewarded

Theme: A request for justice against those who make slanderous comments. God is the perfect Judge and will punish those who persecute the innocent.

The 2nd of seven “penitential “ Psalms

Author: King David

~ PSALM 7 ~

David knew where he needed to go whenever there was spiritual warfare about him! He knew that despite all the opposition against him he could Trust God! Here he is being falsely accused of trying to kill King Saul. A person who he dearly loved! A king who was the father of his bride that was taken from him and who was the father of his best, dearest and closest friend Jonathan whom he truly loved as a brother!

What anguish and ambivalence his heart must have felt! Betrayed and pursued by this powerful king who was his father- in – law that he loved! Slandered and lied upon and erroneously accused of trying to take the throne away from him…. Instead of taking matters in his own hands and striking back he earnestly, vehemently and vociferously cries out to the Lord! He cries out for Justice to our all knowing God!

Here we learn a great invaluable lesson of how to properly respond when under attack. When everything and everyone is coming against you even those who you least expect have abandoned you… When you are being pursued or slandered or falsely accused and your back is against the wall… It is the perfect time to “PRAY!”

“O LORD my GOD, I take refuge in YOU; save and deliver me from ALL who pursue me, or they will tear me like a lion and rip me to pieces with no one to rescue me.”

Here we can better understand precisely what a devoted man David wasI have found David the son of Jesse a man after God’s own heart He will do everything I want him to do...” Acts 13. David chose to follow the Lord with all his heart! Yes! He faltered at times! But he did not relish or find comfort in his times of weakness… He made a sincere deliberate attempt to put the will of the Lord above all else! We learn that David “followed ME (the Lord) with all His heart.” I Kings 14. He was dependent upon the Lord! Confession and readily repenting is how we can keep our hearts pure! Here he teaches us the spiritual virtue of transparency!

The blood of Jesus has cleansing Power!

While David is going through he turns his focus to the Lord! While in deep meditation and prayer he wholeheartedly confesses to the Lord! He even asks if he is in any way guilty in the matter to let his enemy overtake him. Now that is powerful! His heart is no doubt contrite! Here we see that David is acutely aware of the need to be disciplined for any wrong behavior. To the degree he asks the Lord to allow his oppressor to reprimand him. If necessary to take his life! Here again is potent evidence to the purity of his heart! David is secure enough in his relationship with the Lord that if warranted or necessary he is willing to take the consequences for his behavior!

O LORD my GOD, if I have done this and there is guilt on my hands, if I have done evil to him who is at PEACE with me or without cause have robbed my foe, then, let my enemy pursue and overtake me; let him trample my life to the ground and make me sleep in the dust.”

After prayer, confession and pouring out his soul David then petitions the Lord to come to his defense. It is perceptibly detected that he is not guilty! Thus he asks the Lord to respond in his behalf! To now take just action against his enemies on his behalf. Woe to them that rise up against a child of God whose heart is to the Lord! God is FAITHFUL! It is during times of oppression and persecution we too can beseech the Lord to overtake our oppressors… To in fact ask Him to allow His wrath to come down upon them.

God is real! His WORD is alive and oh so powerful we can learn much here! The enemy is the “father of lies” and deceives many

KNOW the difference between preaching gossip and the GOSPEL!

When we allow our self to be properly positioned and sincerely, humbly submit to the Lord we can TRUST Him to come through every time. We can ALWAYS and FOREVER stand upon the TRUTH! God is truly a just God! “Arise O LORD, in your anger; rise up against the rage of my enemies. Awake, my God; decree JUSTICE!”

Here again we can learn that nothing is hidden to the Lord! You can either find PEACE in knowing this or either become terribly troubled? Like it or not we are an open book to the Lord! Praise God! There is no place to go and nowhere to hide! Confession is good for the soul! The Lord already knows! God is not at all impressed by hiding behind foolish pride. So why not submit and readily admit when wrong? Sin only separates us from God! Confession is to admit wrong, repent and seek to be again spiritually united with our Heavenly Father! He will be a buffer against the wicked. They can do no more than He allows… As His children there is no better place but to be in HIS WILL! It is only in Him we can find true “Security and Significance!”

“O Righteous GOD, who searches minds and hearts, bring to end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure.”

Have you ever heard the hymn What A Friend We Have in Jesus? It says a lot! He is truly a dear Friend like no other! It is well worth quoting: “What a Friend we have in Jesus. All our sins and grieves to bear! All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer. O what Peace we often forfeit! O what needless pain we bear! ALL because we do not carry everything to God in prayer!”

David knew the importance of songs! He often sang to the Lord! Giving Praise to the Lord in song is a wonderful way to show your thankfulness! Praise in song is an integral part of Worship!

If you want protection from whatever is happening to you or coming against you there is nothing or no one more powerful than the Lord! David is being pursued with a vengeance by the most powerful man of the land. But he did not fight back! Nor is David a coward!

David was but a shepherd boy when he killed Goliath, a ferocious giant that no one else could defeat. He knew that Goliath no matter how big and fierce was but a mere mortal man. He remained unafraid and viewed him from God’s perspective. He did not allow their ridiculing him hinder his trust in God instead it drove him to trust the Lord even more! He voluntarily stepped forth to the challenge! He always knew that with the Lord by his side he would at some point prevail victoriously!

We too when faced against seemingly immeasurable odds must put our trust and hope in the Lord as well! Perspective makes all the difference in the world! We must step out on Faith! “Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen!” Hebrews 11. When we take the time to spend time with the Lord we better position ourselves to hear Him! We must learn toBe STILL and KNOW!” In HIS own time God will make right what is wrong! God is always speaking we just have to get better at listening! “Have FAITH in GOD! God will protect us when we are submitted to His will and His way!

“My shield is GOD MOST HIGH, who SAVES the upright in heart. GOD is a righteous Judge, a God who expresses His wrath every day.”

There is much wickedness about us in this world. Much spiritual warfare! It can often come from unexpected places as well as from those you least expect… We are living in a time when manycall evil good and GOOD evil…” Isaiah 5. When darkness is put before LIGHT! There is darkness in places where the LIGHT of the LORD should shine most brightly! To this the LORD says woe! Destruction is soon to follow! Never underestimate the Lord and His timing! Nothing gets by the Lord! He patiently allows some things for but a season.

It is very important as a believer to not look to the world for direction. Don’t allow the many loopholes it allows for you to abandon what goes against the principles of God! This is the way of the enemy getting a stronghold in your life… The Word of God is our “Life Manual” consult it regularly to see if you are in the Faith!

Quite often many innocent people are hurting! Bad things do happen to good people! There are again those who are spiritually weak and will go whatever way the wind blows. No deep sense of loyalty often resting on a shaky foundation. There are also those who will sit on the fence and watch what happens even when they know that what is going on is not right! There are those who live to simply corrupt and disrupt the lives of the children of God. To sow discord among us… Spiritual discernment is so very important! It is important to look to the Lord!

Here again in this Psalm King Saul is doing all he can to hold on to a position that he has lost. He has come against David with everything possible. David is having a wilderness experience retreating from the fury of Saul’s unjust accusations and mistreatment. He so wants to destroy David. But all this time the Lord is preparing David for what’s ahead! Yes! Saul is pregnant with evil…… He even has a tormenting spirit that has taken over his soul! So much so to the point he has lied and turned just about everyone against David. He has maligned his character and dug a pit for him. But as the Word says; “WOE!” Always keep in mind that God is a “JUST GOD!”

The world is constantly changing. There is much going on about us today as well. Wars amd rumors of war. Leaders fighting to remain in position after years of corrupt service, not very different than King Saul! Numerous natural earthquakes with much devastation upon the land… God is speaking:You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. Then you will be handed over and persecuted….” Matthew 24. The Word of God is being fulfilled!

We must seek God’s face for direction during these interesting times. It is important to increasingly become aware. Do not allow what is happening to pull you away from focusing on the Lord. Do not allow anyone to mislead you onto the wide road of destruction! Again, the Lord allows things to be only for a season… David teaches us that we must turn to the Lord when we are being oppressed! Instead the traps they set for us will in time only backfire. One must stay prayerful! God will in His time execute His righteous judgment! In the meantime stay right or get right with God! Our victory is in the Lord!

Know what you say you believe! God’s principles for living have not changed! Know God for yourself! It is not always visible or readily apparent what is happening in the background. But God is aware of everything! He is all knowing! He is Omniscient! The spiritual warfare continues to distort the Truth! One must be prayerful, patient and discerning to know the difference between GOOD and evil! It cloaks itself in so many ways… Don’t be deceived! The signs are all about us! It is important to spend time daily in the Word and in prayer!

This is an excellent Psalm of hope whenever you are up against much opposition! God will take care of you! We must seek Him above all else! Just know that God is aware of everything that is happening to and around us! Whatever traps that may be deceptively placed in your path Trust the Lord to guide you around or through them. Whatever is not of Him will eventually come to nought… As David did we too must cry out to the Lord! You can count on God’s Word! “He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment. He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit that he has made.” We can be THANKFUL that the presence of the Lord is available to us 24/7! Praise God!


This Psalms concludes saying: “I will give THANKS to the LORD because of HIS righteousness and will sing PRAISE to the NAME of the LORD MOST HIGH.”

      This is why we ALL need Him as Savior & LORD! HIS Holy Spirit can bring us much COMFORT! Life is full of mountain and valley experiences but PRAISE BE TO GOD! He CAN and WILL bring us through every time! May you be ENCOURAGED and may our Heavenly Father send someone your way to uplift you , hug you, encourage you, and let you know that you are loved! Love you much and I praise the Lord for allowing our paths to cross!

      In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

All His promises are true! In His time He will work everything out for our good! May the Lord continue to strenghten and keep you!

      A M Werner, It is quite comforting knowing that the Lord knows the TRUTH! He is TRUTH! Yes! David is a great example! We should turn to the Lord in times of persecution and mistreatment! Continuously leaning and depending on the Lord is really what life is all about! He is our Creator and Maker above Him is no other! The beauty is now as believers because of Jesus Christ we have the indwelling presence of His precious Holy Spirit! Our constatnt Comforter! Keeping in mind He knows exactly what is going on and promises not to put anymore on us than we can bear... We too must continue on in the spiritual battle by speaking forth the TRUTH of the Lord's Word and implementing His principles in our lives daily!

      Therefore we must TRUST Him and seek Him above all else for direction! Thank you for sharing, your wise spiritual insight! In His Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

      As Revelation 12:10 tells us, false accusers are constantly trying to get the Lord's ear. We can learn so much from David's patience. He had opportunity to take Saul's life and didn't. He could have taken the throne for himself anytime he wanted, but chose rather to fight the enemies of Yisrael while deflecting the attacks of his own people against him. It was an unbelieveable life he led in those days - one truly inspiring as your hubs are pointing out. We must stay spiritually wrong in the midst of worldly persecution. Peace

      Almasi, Thank you! The Word is an endless resource to help us grow spiritually! You are so right! The Lord does not need us we need Him! This is why we ALL need to take time regularly meditating in His Word! This is what helps us to better understand our position through Jesus Christ. As we grow spiritually we can learn to better implement His principles in our own lives…. What you say is true. We really do need to exercise self control! This way at times we can stand strongly and silently…. And allow the Lord to fight our battles…

      Thank you so much for sharing your insight! Please do come again! In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings! God Bless YOU!

      Nobody, David is an honorable man no doubt…. I see your point… But I have seen many sit back and allow leaders in the Lord's Church to create much havoc and blatantly defy His Word... and they will use this as an excuse to allow things that should not be... As men or women of God we should not support someone that you know is definitely going against the Word of God! Love them; but not support the evident sin... They should be confronted in love “Brothers, (sisters) if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him (her) gently…” Galatians 6

      Please correct me if I am in err but I believe you are talking about Gamaliel one of the leaders in the Sanhedrin in Acts 5. They wanted to put the apostles to death because they remained steadfast in their obedience to the Lord… As a matter of fact they told them “We must obey GOD rather than men,” Gamaliel stood up and told them to leave them alone and said “But if it is from God you will not be able to stop these men, you will find yourselves fighting against God!” I don’t think we have the right nor can we say who goes to heaven or hell…. But in these last days I think it is important to point any and everyone to the Lord’s Word to restore, heal or reconcile relationships…. We as the Church must speak forth, uphold, live out and encourage others to embrace the principles of His Word as well… It is becoming increasingly apparent that there is a falling away taking place…

      Amen! Yes! Our bodies belong to the Lord and to our spouses! It is because of Him we can experience with His blessing the ultimate beauty of two becoming one!”

      God Bless you my brother in the Lord. Your insights and comments are always welcome here in HIS Love & Service, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings! To GOD Be The Glory!

      Favorite quotes:

      "The Word of God is endless in its ability to help us through whatever or any situation that is presented to us in life!"

      "despite all the opposition against him he could Trust God!"

      enjoyed this look at Psalm 7. It seems like it is during these times of oppression and persecution we draw most nearly and dearly to Him just as David did.

      I also liked your New Testament application to this Psalm to cry out to Jesus.

      thanks for this hub which has so many teachings.

      I loved "But, David did not strike back he instead cleaved to the Lord and found refuge in caves."

      One lesson I learnt is that God does not need our help. He can fight His and our battles. You see David could have easily justified killing Saul before his men but to God murder is still murder and there is no justification for it.

      In our day to day lives, we could be faced with the temptation to lash out verbally when we are being treated unfairly and therefore mar our testimony, so the lesson here is sometimes if we just can't complain/fight nicely, I think we should let God complain/fight on our behalf.

      Good Hub! Jesus spoke often of the Psalms even at his ressurrection.

      Luke 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

      Luke 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

      Luke 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

      Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

      Luke 24:48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

      Amen! A wonderful message of hope. Turn to the Lord, not the world. David surely left us great examples; great words. I enjoyed reading this today. It has made its mark on me. I will be more diligent about my prayer life. Thank you for this wisdom.

      The thing I love about David ist that he would not raise his hand up against the Lord's annointed. I know so many people who take exception to something that God's man or woman, depending on the ministry would say and then speak or raise up their hand against that person that God has put in that position. He felt that God put him there and God would remove him. He would have agreed with Nicodemus (I think it was Nic) that spoke of Christ. He said if he be of God then no one can stop Him and if he not be of God he would fade and not last because God is not with him. So many people in an assembly or hearing of an assembly will rise up against that person as judge jury and executioner. I also loved it when you said. "Therefore whenever seeking inner healing, cleansing, or restoration invite Him into every oriface, joint, vein, cavity, crease, fold and tissue of your being." I like this because people really don't think of their bodies as belonging to anyone other than themselves. But we were bought with a price our bodies do not belong to us and we are to treat them like they are borrowed. They belong to the Lord and our mate. DeB wonderful wisdom and lovely moments with the Lord. Thank you dear sweet sister. Love you.
