Psalm 52:6-7 (JDV)
Psalm 52:6 The righteous will see and fear, and they will derisively say about that “hero,”
Psalm 52:7 “Here is the man who would not make God his refuge, but trusted in the abundance of his wealth, taking refuge in his destructive behavior.”
David was betrayed by a man named Doeg, who saw an opportunity to get ahead in this world by throwing David under the bus. Instead of taking action against Doeg, David prayed. He let God handle his problem. He sought refuge in God. He chose to fight his battle on his knees.
When God responds to such prayer, those problems become signs. The people like Doeg who think themselves heroes become zeroes. Neither their accumulated wealth nor their violent temper will be able to preserve them from his judgment.
Lord, give us the wisdom to fight our battles on our knees so that you get the glory for our victory.
