The Ground of Protection

Psalm 7:1- 2 reminds me of 1 Peter 5:8.  David is asking for protection from his enemy that will tear him and drag him away like the lion that Peter describes.  There seems to be some interesting parallels here.
Is there any requirement of us to have God's protection?  Thoughts at DTTB.
But it seems that Psalm 7:12 may shed some light on a possible prerequisite for God’s protection from the enemy.  If one does not repent, the Lord becomes the enemy.  This is similar to James 4:7 is it not.  In order to defeat the enemy in our lives we must first submit to God.

To seek protection when we are choosing not to follow God, based on these passages seems a bit presumptive.
