When words fail us, the book of Psalms can help us express our deepest emotions, whether we face problems or perils. The book of Psalms is not a book of doctrine but rather a guide or hymnal for worship and prayer.
Beloved in the Lord,
For the next two weeks, we will talk about, THE PSALMS!
Today’s focus is on, PSALM 7:8
May the Holy Spirit minister deeply into our hearts, the message He has for us today.
SCRIPTURE: “Let the LORD judge the people. Judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, according to my integrity, O Most High.“ (Psalm 7:8 NIV)
Scripture clearly states that no human being is “good” or has cause to be self-righteous (Romans 3:10-12); only through faith in Jesus Christ, who shed His blood for our sin, are we declared righteous (Romans 3:20-26). David does not claim to be perfect, but he confidently asserts that, to the best of his knowledge, he is following God’s Will and does not deserve to be persecuted by his enemies. He acknowledges that he could have a blind spot (Ps. 7:3-5), but he trusts that the perfect God who sees fully into every person’s mind and heart will honor his sincere desire to be a man of integrity (Ps. 7:9). Our God promises to reward those who earnestly seek him (Heb. 11:6) When we pursue relationship with Him, placing our ultimate faith in His character rather than in our own, we can be sure we will receive both justice and mercy.
