Psalm 54

Chapter Summary

Another Prayer for Safety

Once again, we see one of David’s early psalms—yet again betrayed to King Saul, who wants to kill him. This time, he is able to cling more clearly to his faith, not only naming God as his helper and sustainer, but also, in verse 6, showing us what that “sacrifice of thanksgiving” is. He is sacrificing in praise now, before his prayer is answered! Can you do that?

Day 180

Savior, You are my only safety. I thank You right now for deliverance I know will come in Your own time.

Psalm 54:4

Psalm 54


54 Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength.

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

For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah.

Behold, God is mine helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.

He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy truth.

I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name, O Lord; for it is good.

For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.
