Scripture: Psalms 143:9,10
David has a covenant right to ask for deliverance. In verses 9,10 he says, “Deliver me, O LORD, from my enemies; In You I take shelter. Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.” Demanding covenant deliverance while asking God to teach us to do His will and to lead us into a land of uprightness is a brilliant thing to pray. “Turn this captivity, deliver us and lead us into righteousness.” David knows how to invite God into the middle of his situation and then progressively move Him toward action by recounting the oppression, by defining the experience and by outlining the destruction unless God moves to change destiny. Psalm 143 obtains Divine action and it is a great outline to follow for where we are right now.
