Amidst many enemies which surround him, the psalmist cries out to God for help. Because the Lord has already sustained him in his most dire circumstances, the psalmist is assured that he will not taste death unless it is allowed by the Lord Himself. This is our blessed hope of which we can be assured as well, because of the Mercy of God. We live not by the will or power of others either for or against us, but by the Sovereign Will of the Most High King. By His Plan are we kept to lie down and wake again each day. By His desire to keep us do we know that we can withstand any enemy.
Because God has granted us Eternal Salvation through His Son, we have all we need in the heavens and earth. Our cry of help to the Lord has been fully met in Jesus and continues to sustain us even now. No measure of enemies can undo His blessed help. No foe of ours can overwhelm the assurance of His refuge and strength. While alone we are helpless against people and principalities much stronger than us, by the Lord our God we are kept every side until eternity. Praise God for His Salvation, which is now and forever!
