“Not the Way to Prosper”
Psalm 144: 7b, 8, 11: “Rescue me and deliver me out of great waters, out of the hand of aliens whose mouths speak deceit, and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.” As we have seen for the last seven weeks, a lot of people – local as well as alien – spoke deceit and falsehood against King David. None of them ended well. No, David wasn’t perfect, but he was king, chosen and crowned by God Himself. It is not a coincidence that every day this week we have been warned in the Scriptures about cursing or speaking ill against leaders. It is rampant today, and we need to make sure it is a habit that we do not get sucked into!
