Unfortunately, there are wicked people in the world. There are people who would love nothing more than to see us crumble and fall. Yet, the psalmist prays for help dealing with them. Read Psalm chapter 140.
Keep me, O Lord , from the hands of the wicked; Preserve me from violent men Who have purposed to trip up my feet.
Psalms 140:4 NASB
When we encounter people who seem only interested in our destruction, how do we respond? Do we get angry and fight back, or do we bring it to the Lord? God will defend us and will preserve our integrity through all that He brings us through. Are we coming to Him first?
