“…protect my life from the threat of the enemy.”

Tonight as I am burdened with thoughts that will not go away, I turn my gaze to the Lord’s word.  I thumb through the multitude of pages looking for something.  What I find is this:

“Hear me, my God, as I voice my complaint; protect my life from the threat of the enemy.” (Psalm 64:1 NIV)

I need God’s protection to keep my heart from failing.  My gaze has not been on Him these past few weeks and I have allowed other idols to take control over my heart.  This is the enemy lurking…this is danger.

So my prayer tonight, my sovereign King, is please protect my heart, my soul, my life from the destructive wiles of the enemy.  Bring my heart back into obedience.  I need you.
