What Do You Really Think?

David was very imaginative about his enemies. In Psalm 58, he said that they were wicked from birth, in the womb they were wayward and spoke lies. He said they were like a snake, a cobra, that could not be charmed.

The only thing better than his description of the enemies, was his description of how the Lord should destroy them.

He called on the Lord to break their teeth or let them be like a slug melting away.

He was assured the righteous would be glad when they were avenged, and bathe their feet in the blood of the wicked.

David was who he was. He was a shepherd and a warrior at this point in his life.   He prayed honest prayers about his troubles.

As believers we get caught up in what we should be doing, and not thinking about the current condition of our heart.  Sometimes we want God to break the teeth of our enemy to shut down the lies.  We want the venomous snake to be destroyed so that the righteous are avenged.

David showed us how to give it to God. (No, we should not try to handle it ourselves.) Tell Him what you really think about the situation. Stand back and let Him handle it. He will.
