O God, listen to my complaint.
    Protect my life from my enemies’ threats.
Hide me from the plots of this evil mob,
    from this gang of wrongdoers.
They sharpen their tongues like swords
    and aim their bitter words like arrows.
They shoot from ambush at the innocent,

    and plan how to set their traps in secret.
    “Who will ever notice?” they ask.
As they plot their crimes, they say,
    “We have devised the perfect plan!”
    Yes, the human heart and mind are cunning. Psalm 64: 1-6

Do you feel guilty about complaining to God? Should you?

In my part of Alaska, the geese are migrating from their northern breeding grounds, flying thousands of miles south, for the winter. They fly, in a V-shaped formation and honk to communicate. Geese take turns leading, in the front, while the others fly slightly higher than the one in front of them. This makes for less wind resistance and a better lift, with less effort.

Let all that I am wait quietly before God,
    for my hope is in him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
    my fortress where I will not be shaken.
My victory and honor come from God alone.
    He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.
O my people, trust in him at all times.
    Pour out your heart to him,
    for God is our refuge. Interlude Psalm 62:5-8

What does it mean in practical reality that no enemy can reach you?
