"O Lord my GOD, in Thee do I put my trust: save me from all who persecute me and deliver me." David may have wrote this Psalm after he heard the words of Cush the Benjamite to King Saul.
Again, it hurts when people accuse you of doing something especially when you didn't do it. To hear someone slander your name when you are innocent. Very tough to take and so you will hear David pleading his innocence to the Lord. The beauty is that GOD knows all. Even when we say something that came out wrong GOD, knows our heart. David puts his trust in the Lord because GOD knows the truth. Sometimes trusting GOD can be hard but in doing so you will not have to bear your cross alone. In fact, you will always come out victorious!!!! In Jesus Name Amen.
Lord deliver me from the opinions of people.
Meditate on what GOD says about you. You are royalty, a chosen generation, a peculiar people, no good thing will He withhold from you, He will give you the desires of your heart. You shall be the head and not the tail, above and not beneath.
My defense is of GOD, which saves the upright in heart. Psalms 7:10 KJV
