Psalm 140 is a prayer for protection. David is praying for protection with confidence that the LORD will protect him. David’s trials testify of God’s faithful protection.
Our enemy sets traps before us, whether we recognize them or not. We can suit up every day for this battle by putting on the armor of God.
Be ready! Let the truth be like a belt around your waist, and let God’s justice protect you like armor. Your desire to tell the good news about peace should be like shoes on your feet. Let your faith be like a shield, and you will be able to stop all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Let God’s saving power be like a helmet, and for a sword use God’s message that comes from the Spirit. (Ephesians 6:14-17. CEV)
Suit up and I’ll see you tomorrow for Psalm 141.
