David is constantly asking for protection from His enemies, but in Psalm 64, he goes further and asks for protection from fear. He recognizes that dread can be just as destructive when it attacks the heart as arrows are when they pierce the body. When hidden enemies shoot from the bushes, they have no fear. But David prays to the God who sees all, and and calls on Him to act and put fear back into the hearts of the wicked. So as you come to worship today, ask God to take away your dread, and sing loud praises to the God who has delivered you not only from the people or things that you fear, but from fear itself.
