"Enemies? I have no enemies?" (Psalm 7)

David Murray

Enemies? I have no enemies.” I’d been singing a Psalm in church one Sunday morning, one of the many Psalms in which David sings about his enemies. I was singing with my mouth, but not with my heart, because my mind had decided this was irrelevant. I was twelve-years-old, growing up in the peaceful middle-class suburbs of Glasgow. The biggest enemy I had at that point was my alarm clock. “Enemies? I have no enemies. So why am I singing about them?” 

It’s a question I’m sure many of you have as we open Psalm 7 in today’s podcast. So do we just skip this Psalm as irrelevant? Or is there a way to apply it to our lives?
