Psalm 57 Bible Study
1. Be bold because God will fight for you
When David is surrounded by his enemies, he called out to God and trusted that he will fight for him and deliver him. You should always commit your problems to God and let him help you. In Exodus 14:14, the LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. In Matthew 28:20, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. In Hebrews 13:5, let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. In 1 Corinthians 3:16, know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? In Romans 8:38-39, for I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,Â Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. In Joshua 1:9, have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
