Watching Our Watch

Psalm 69:13-21

13 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.

14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.

15 Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.

16 Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.

17 And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.

18 Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of mine enemies.

19 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries are all before thee.

20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

I have entitled this today: “Watching Our Watch”

David said in Psalm 69:13: But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time:

Sometimes, as Christians, we think God does not hear us when we pray.

David was saying, “but as for me”, David, by no way, was perfect but David had a heart that longed for the things of God.

David’s prayer was unto the Lord.

Verse 13 speaks of David as a type of Christ, both David and Christ cried to God incessantly.

David, as a type of Christ, knew that God was his only hope, the greater Son of David would likewise cry to God for leading and guidance.

This ought to be an example. God is the only One who can protect us and can, in fact, change our situations, whatever they might be.

Psalm 69:14

14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.

David is speaking of, in this passage, the terrible mire of sin that he has fallen into regarding Bathsheba.

His enemies of which seemed to be many probably used this weapon against him.

The same could be said of Christ in a greater way, except He committed no sin.

Jesus would take our sin upon Himself, becoming one with its penalty; He would suffer the full affects of its sorrow, even though He didn’t failed one time.

David needed deliverance and God is the only One who can bring about deliverance.

Psalm 69:15

15 Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.

This is the perfect picture of Satan to destroy an individual.

These passages could well apply to Gethsemane, when Satan attempted to kill Christ before He could go to the Cross.

Only God’s intervention saved His life.

Whenever I think pit, I think of a type of Hell.

Sometimes I think we decide that we like what is on the inside of the pit.

The pit might look beautiful and enticing, but we need to understand who is actually in the pit.

Satan is in the pit and he wants to take you as close as you will go, thinking that you will fall into the pit with him.
