    God is awesome, omnipotent, loving, caring even when we offend Him he does not retaliate like us human. He keep patience waiting for us to still turn back to Him. Psalms 6 teaches us that no matter what happens to us God is not sleeping, he is with us and we should not fear anything even death.

    David was asking God for MERCY and Protection from his enemies...The Lord promise us that he will never leave us not forsake us...David was a man after Gods OWN heart...Gods answers are either Yes,No or wait...he has to be glorified...he said he will make our enemy our foot stool...we don't need to fear what man can do unto us..because of God is with us. He's more than those that is against us...
