The Danger of False Words

by | Jan 18, 2023 | Vital Life Application Devotions

Psalm 120:2. Save me, LORD, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues


Psalm 120 is the first of 15 called “Songs of Ascent.” These psalms are given this title is because they are conducive to lifting a person up from hopelessness and helplessness into knowing that anything is possible with God. Reciting these psalms a person ascends, rising above circumstances and coming closer to God. In this psalm, King David voiced concerns over the lies that were spoken about him. Like David, we pray “Save me, LORD, from lying lips.” In this psalm, David likened lies to “a warrior’s sharp arrows” (v.4). An arrow is designed to kill from afar, so, too, can false words bring danger to those at a distance from the speaker. No wonder David turned to God for help! How else could he protect himself from the danger of false words, the sharp arrows pointed in his direction? We can use our words to heal. We can use our words to speak the truth, and most importantly, to pray. Pray for safety and protection from all destructive lies.
