Question(s) for Reflection
• What does the passage teach about God the Father, God the Son or God the Holy Spirit?
Nothing breaks a man’s heart like pursuing him without a cause or heaping false accusation on him though innocent. In such situation, the best option is to run to one who can give you protection and defend your cause (vs.1-2). The need for personal examination is very important in checking whether our troubles are self-inflicted or from our enemies (vs.3-4). God from ages past has remained a righteous judge who vindicates the just and punishes evil (vs.5-9).
We can always trust in His righteous judgment without asking Him to fight evil doers. What does vs.10-11 say more about God? David turns to the wicked and warns him (vs.12-16). The neglect of such warnings could be disastrous if the wicked does not repent of his sins (James 1:15).
Thanking the Lord in anticipation of answered prayers is an expression of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ who is interceding for us (Romans 8:34).
