Those who want to kill me will be destroyed; they will go down to the depths of the earth.
They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals. Psalm 63:9-10
The “carnal” David is now speaking, and wishing the very worst on his enemies. The contrasts between what he wants to do to his enemies and how he worships God is stark. It’s very similar to how we should look at prayer: glance at our problems, gaze at the Lord. If you think about it, our problems – and in this case, David’s enemies – are nothing compared to the greatness, majesty, and strength of the Lord God Almighty. Yes, we all have problems, but as it’s been said many times, God is much greater than the sum or our problems.
So, if we are to rightly put our problems into perspective, we glance at our problems and turn them over to God. Of course, this is much easier said than done, but still, it’s a worthwhile goal.
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 2 Corinthians 4:17
