In this Psalm the writer is crying out to GOD to hear his prayer. He petitions GOD not to be silent or distant but to hear his plea. He begins to tell GOD how his enemies are in total disrespect of GOD and how they conspire against His people.
There are some that totally disrespect that our Father is GOD and yet they continue to fight us. They will eventually learn that they can't mess with GODs people and get away with it. Do they know that our inheritance is of GOD. Do they know that our righteousness is of GOD. They don't know the GOD we serve but they will quickly find out. Don't mess with me, I am a child of GOD.
Sometimes it may seem like GOD is distant and He has left you all alone to fight this battle. One, GOD has never left you. He is always there. Two, could it be that GOD is making you. He is stretching you to build endurance, to give you the strength to continue because where GOD is taking you, you have to be a mature Believer. So this trial is only to make you stronger. You have to pass this test so that you can continue on.
Let them know that you, whose name is the LORD— that you alone are the Most High over all the earth. Psalms 83:18
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV
O God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God. 2 See how your enemies growl, how your foes rear their heads. 3 With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. 4 “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.” 5 With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you— 6 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagrites, 7 Byblos, Ammon and Amalek, Philistia, with the people of Tyre. 8 Even Assyria has joined them to reinforce Lot’s descendants. 9 Do to them as you did to Midian, as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon, 10 who perished at Endor and became like dung on the ground. 11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna, 12 who said, “Let us take possession of the pasturelands of God.” 13 Make them like tumbleweed, my God, like chaff before the wind. 14 As fire consumes the forest or a flame sets the mountains ablaze, 15 so pursue them with your tempest and terrify them with your storm. 16 Cover their faces with shame, LORD, so that they will seek your name. 17 May they ever be ashamed and dismayed; may they perish in disgrace. 18 Let them know that you, whose name is the LORD— that you alone are the Most High over all the earth. Psalms 83 NIV
