It is an open and bold confession of the Psalmist to the rest of the world that God is available and He can deliver him from danger. It is again his marvellous declaration of God’s act that He is in control of the Psalmist’s life and nothing can harm him. It is not the Psalmist’s positive behaviour but godly and Spirit-led attitude towards his life.

We observe a great truth here. The Psalmist’s godly life style is a genuine inspiration to our Bible believeing local church believers. The Psalmist is convinced about the Lord standing by his side. The Lord Jesus walks with him in his life and humans like him and above him in strength and position cannot do anything against him and finish him off.
