Psalm 64


            If Righteous, My Refuge Is in God

            10 The righteous man will be glad in the LORD and will take refuge in Him;

            And all the upright in heart will glory.

·         In all our troubles, whether beset by “the unceasing and infinite malice of the devil, the perfidy of men, or the ingratitude of the world,” it is best to carry our cause immediately to God in prayer.

·         Let every one beware of hardening his heart in sin. This he may do by refusing to think; by indulging in sin after pondering the wickedness he is about to perpetrate; but chiefly by encouraging himself in the way of transgressors, saying, “All will be well,” when God says the contrary.
