God's protected people: The truth of God's sovereignty over the nations makes God's people secure. In this section of Korah Psalms (44 - 48) , there is such a strong theme of God as King over the nations (even in 44 where His people seem defeated, the presupposition is that God has power over the nations, He just is choosing to not enact it). They come at you one at a time and build in intensity, from 44 that is a cry in defeat, to 47 and 48 that depiict God as the exalted Lord of the earth. These Psalms remind me of the "God reigns" Psalms (93-99). They build such faith in the sovereignty of God. I am encouraged by the Psalm when I think of the spiritual enemies that would come against me (vs. 6)
