Psalm 7:1-2 O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me: Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver. In a dream earlier this week, I was made aware of an enemy that worked covertly to 'tear my soul'. And as I was engulfed by the swirl of pain, I remembered who I am (in the Lord). I spoke out every truth that He personally taught me and the pain stopped. When I awoke from the dream, and prayed over what I had just been shown, the Holy Spirit gave promises and restored my peace. I looked up the word 'tear', and the Merriam-Webster has this definition: 'causing continued pain or distress'. The circumstances of my life haven't changed, but there is NO tearing pain. I am free to live for Him, Who gives me life. (vs 10) My defense is of God, which saveth the upright in heart. (vs 17) I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name Of the LORD most high. The Holy Spirit graciously made this situation known, but how often does He protect us that we are never made aware of? My guess is that those times are without number.
