Scripture:
“Do not be far from me, my God;
come quickly, God, to help me.
May my accusers perish in shame;
may those who want to harm me
be covered with scorn and disgrace.

As for me, I will always have hope;
I will praise you more and more.

My mouth will tell of your righteous deeds,
of your saving acts all day long—
though I know not how to relate them all.” ~Psalm 71:12-15

Observation:
David’s accusers are those trying to remove him from power. They are people who oppose his kingship over Israel.

Application:
My only accuser (that I know of) is Satan. He doesn’t oppose me in a political sense, but he does want to see that God’s power doesn’t have an effect in my life.

Prayer:
God, come quickly to save me from my accuser. Help me to resist him and always keep Your praise in my words. Like David, I don’t know how to tell the things you have done, but I will do my best. I hope in you, God, help me.
