Rejoicing in Answered Prayer

Psalm 28:6-7

Psalm 28:6-7  Blessed be the Lord, because He has heard the voice of my supplications.  The Lord is my Strength and my [impenetrable] Shield; my heart trusts in, relies on, and confidently leans on Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song will I praise Him.

Psalm 28

To You I will cry, O Lord my Rock:    Do not be silent to me, Lest, if You are silent to me, I become like those who go down to the pit.

Hear the voice of my supplications when I cry to You, when I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary.

Do not take me away with the wicked and with the workers of iniquity, who speak peace to their neighbors, but evil is in their hearts.

Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavors;  give them according to the work of their hands;  render to them what they deserve.    Because they do not regard the works of the Lord, nor the operation of His hands, He shall destroy them and not build them up.

Blessed be the Lord, because He has heard the voice of my supplications!

The Lord is my strength and my shield;  my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped;  therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song I will praise Him.

The Lord is their strength, and He is the saving refuge of His anointed. 

Save Your people, and bless Your inheritance;  Shepherd them also, and bear them up forever

Psalm 18:1-6

I will love You, O Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised;
So shall I be saved from my enemies.

The pangs of death surrounded me,
And the floods of ungodliness made me afraid.

The sorrows of Sheol surrounded me;
The snares of death confronted me.

In my distress I called upon the Lord,
And cried out to my God;
He heard my voice from His temple,
And my cry came before Him, even to His ears.

Psalm 18:16-36

He sent from above, He took me; He drew me out of many waters.    He delivered me from my strong enemy, from those who hated me, for they were too strong for me.

They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the Lord was my support.

He also brought me out into a broad place;  He delivered me because He delighted in me.   The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness;  according to the cleanness of my hands He has recompensed me.

For I have kept the ways of the Lord, and have not wickedly departed from my God.    For all His judgments were before me, and I did not put away His statutes from me.    I was also blameless before Him, and I kept myself from my iniquity.

Therefore the Lord has recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in His sight.

With the merciful You will show Yourself merciful;  with a blameless man You will show Yourself blameless;  with the pure You will show Yourself pure;  and with the devious You will show Yourself shrewd.    For You will save the humble people, but will bring down haughty looks.

For You will light my lamp;  The Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.

For by You I can run against a troop, by my God I can leap over a wall.

As for God, His way is perfect;  The word of the Lord is proven;  He is a shield to all who trust in Him.   For who is God, except the Lord?   And who is a rock, except our God?

It is God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect.    He makes my feet like the feet of deer,  and sets me on my high places.

He teaches my hands to make war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.    You have also given me the shield of Your salvation;  Your right hand has held me up,  Your gentleness has made me great.    You enlarged my path under me, so my feet did not slip.

Psalm 18:46-50

The Lord lives!
Blessed be my Rock!
Let the God of my salvation be exalted.

It is God who avenges me,
And subdues the peoples under me;

He delivers me from my enemies.

You also lift me up above those who rise against me;
You have delivered me from the violent man.

Therefore I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the Gentiles, and sing praises to Your name.

Great deliverance He gives to His king,
And shows mercy to His anointed,
To David and his descendants forevermore.
