There is much praise and worship in this chapter as per usual for David the Psalmist, however, I would like to note a few verses that are so much about praise, but rather letting God be God.
As a follower of Jesus Christ and a Child of God we should know that God takes care of us. We should also know that God will take care of us more so when we stop worrying about our circumstances and start letting God worry about it. Scripture says it this way: "Casting all your care upon Him for he cares for you."
One thing we don't do, which David did very well in this chapter is give this enemies circumstances to God. So many times we try to take matters into our own hands, and deal with the enemies personally. This should not be! If God can take care of you, don't you think He can also take care of, and reward your enemy for his deeds? Stop trying to control everything in your life. Stop trying to get even with those who hurt you. Rather, get yourself to a prayer closet and pray yourself into a frame of mind that can forgive your enemy, and let God handle the rest! "Vengeance is mine, Sayeth the Lord, I will repay!"
Don't let what your enemy is doing get you all twisted in a knot. Give it to Jesus! Just think of the song "What a Friend we have in Jesus". We often forfeit much peace because we don't give it all to Jesus!
Have a blessed forgiving day!
