TEXT: PSALM 48:1-14

Key Verse: “For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death” (Psalm 48:14).

Alan Redpath,  evangelist, pastor and a British author, said: “Any battle for victory, power, and deliverance – from ourselves and from sin – which is not based constantly upon the gazing and the beholding of the Lord Jesus, with the heart and life lifted up to Him, is doomed to failure.”

Our text, which is the psalmist’s triumphant song, captures God’s merciful acts of defending His children. Though the psalmist did not pinpoint the exact battle the Lord helped them to conquer, he ascribed the victory to the assistance and enablement they received from God. The passage notes that when the kings of the neighbouring nations attacked Jerusalem, God kept the city and the people that were in it safe. Those kings were frightened by what they saw and they fled.

Apart from explaining what God did and what He could do, the psalmist equally reveals that God, who was delighted in Jerusalem, made effectual provision for its safety because of His perpetual covenant with the children of Zion.

God has placed a high premium on you. Thus, He has concluded that “he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of His eye.” As those kings got frightened and fled, God will cause your enemies to flee from you. Do not fear; only believe, obey and love Him because “when the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.”
