1: The Greatest Insurance Policy Ever!
Lord, You are my personal insurance plan.
Don't let Yourself out of this contract.
Extricate me from all my troubles with your superb mastery.
2: Flick your wonderfully sharp ears in my direction,
Get me out of this quagmire ASAP;
Be my total fall-back blueprint,
My absolutely secure fall-back scheme.
3: Yes, You are my complete, rock-solid defense.
That being the case, and so that You are recognised by everyone around me, direct my footsteps and show me the way.
4: You know about that trap they hid for me - so get me out of it fast. In you is my surprisingly sprung rebound.
5: I am only too happy to fall untterly into Your hands, body, mind and spirit
Your indomitable truth has freed me over and over.
6: I hate the deference given to fool's game icons when I can trust in You.
7: How ecstatic I am dancing here in your compassion, for you are intimately concerned with my problems, and my very soul is safe in Your hands when I'm struggling.
8: Never once have you let the enemy take over - It's always surprising how you extract me from their schemes.
9: And here I am again, Lord, in big trouble. Don't know if I've got any tears left for this poor old body and soul.
10: All my life there is nothing but depression and misery. I've made some stupid mistakes and now I'm paying for them. It seems I haven't a leg to stand on.
11: My detractors make a fool of me, and that includes my close circle of friends. It seems they can't stand the very idea of me. They can never stop to talk but are always busy somewhere else.
12: I might as well be dead for all they care, as long as they don't have to think about me. I feel completely knocked out.
13: They don't get it Lord They're telling lies about me. Their bullying is just plain scary.
They get together to eliminate me out of their picture. ****** is no problem to them.
14: Yet I know I can bet on You, dear Lord. My answer is You.
15: I know that times are yours to deal with; Just get me out of their hands, and get me somewhere safe from this constant persecution.
16: Make an example of them Lord, by exonerating me. Let them know that You are my BLOOD BROTHER!
17: I am dependent on You God, and I know You won't shame me. Let them wear it themselves. The grave will stop their boasting.!
18: I do like the open mouths when liars have nothing to say, because the proud, contemptuous rhetoric against your people hits the dust hard.
19: There is such magnificence about your kindness torque which you set up for us who have finally learned to esteem You., which you spread out for the ones who have joined Your ranks, and it's right out there for the sons of men to covet! (That's what they need to covet.)
20: It's so fun that You protect us secretly by Your very presence, so they can't get a grip on us.. Yes, Your Truth keeps us safely secured, away from their tongue-lashings.
21: I'm screaming out "Blessed be Yahweh" because He has demonstrated to me his kindness torque right here in a dynamic place.
22: I thought, and indeed I said, "You don't care about my situation." Even so, You paid attention to my pleading voice storming your ears.
23: Oh, How can I say it any stronger? All of you who are His children, that the Lord immunises the faithful, and boy does He repay arrogance.
24: Get your war boots on everyone. He is your backup cover - (BLOOD BROTHER JESUS of the NT). Your heart beats in sync with His heart all you brothers and sisters in Jehovah, and that is your strength.
Psalms are songs. I love to re-write them as if they had been just written in Australia. They are certainly not accurate translations, but directly inspired, verse by verse, by David's psalms
