Scripture: Psalms 143:3-4
David switches gears and begins to inform God about the oppressive, destructive nature of the enemy in his life. He goes on in verse 4 to say that the situation seems utterly impossible. He is in the greatest distress of his life. David brilliantly comes before the Lord in humility and then invites God into the devastation that he is facing. You can imagine inviting God into the devastation that we are facing because of the perverse decisions that have been made by political leaders. From the increased sacrificing of innocent blood to the promotion and establishing of homosexuality in kindergarten school curriculums. How filthy, vile and perverse can a country become? Such political decisions demand the hand of God! Expressing the grief of such perversion in the Throne-Room is what sets the stage for the action required as we bring God into the middle of what we face. As a covenant partner, God promised to be with us. In Hebrews 13:5 He declares He will never, ever, leave nor forsake us, never, never, never! That is perhaps the most forceful promise in the New Testament.
