“O God, do not keep silence; do not hold your peace or be still, O God!” (v1). Threatened by their enemies, God’s people called out to Him for direct, miraculous intervention. They knew from history that their ancestors (like Deborah and Barak against Sisera,v9-10) had faced terrible battles and been victorious through God’s power. In this new challenge – many nations allied together against Israel, v6-8 – they asked again for God to make their enemies “like chaff before the wind” (v13).
Though our spiritual enemy wants to “take possession” of what belongs to God (v12), we can trust that He is powerfully able to protect our lives, our families, and our future.
