The Lord Is My Strength & Shield (Psalm 28:1-9)

Phillip Stuckey, November 5, 2017
Part of the Exposition of the Psalms series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

The twenty-eight psalm is another psalm of David. It is a lament psalm where David pleads for God’s justice. It is another psalm that teaches us about praying in the midst of a crisis. But this psalm also teaches something the Jesus emphasized: the need to be persistent in prayer (Luke 18:1-8).

Psalm 28 (Listen)

Of David.

28:1   To you, O LORD, I call;
    my rock, be not deaf to me,
  lest, if you be silent to me,
    I become like those who go down to the pit.
  Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy,
    when I cry to you for help,
  when I lift up my hands
    toward your most holy sanctuary.
  Do not drag me off with the wicked,
    with the workers of evil,
  who speak peace with their neighbors
    while evil is in their hearts.
  Give to them according to their work
    and according to the evil of their deeds;
  give to them according to the work of their hands;
    render them their due reward.
  Because they do not regard the works of the LORD
    or the work of his hands,
  he will tear them down and build them up no more.
  Blessed be the LORD!
    For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy.
  The LORD is my strength and my shield;
    in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
  my heart exults,
    and with my song I give thanks to him.
  The LORD is the strength of his people;
    he is the saving refuge of his anointed.
  Oh, save your people and bless your heritage!
    Be their shepherd and carry them forever.

(ESV)
