Scripture: Psalm 143:1,2
It is always wisdom to follow David’s pattern whenever we are opening a door of justice or accessing the key of death. It is important that we cover these two bases. Psalm 143:1,2 state, “Hear my prayer, O Lord, Give ear to my supplications! In Your faithfulness answer me, And in Your righteousness. Do not enter into judgment with Your servant, For in Your sight no one living is righteous.” Verse 2 has a different application in today’s world because of the blood of Jesus, He has made every believer righteous. If we have received the gift of righteousness, we shall reign in life through one Jesus Christ. But David is starting a prayer process whereby he is going to use the key of death, and it is important in this process to plead in humility with the Lord concerning the issue of righteousness, which David does! I am convinced that using the key of death demands a heart of humility and obedience. When invoking it, it is always wisdom to follow David’s pattern. “Do not enter into judgment with your servant, O LORD” is a great prayer. You know the Lord’s Prayer actually is very, very close to that…. “Lead me not into temptation, but deliver me from evil.” Sometimes we wonder, Where did Jesus get these prayers? Perhaps they have their foundation in the Psalms of David. Isn’t it time we started using the keys? Pray Psalm 94:20-23 over national politicians who refuse to turn!
