Meditations in the Psalms
A remarkable conclusion to David’s desire to have the Lord judge those who have attacked him. He cries out to the Lord for “help” and desires to “praise” Him. He wants his enemies to know that whatever judgment does come, it will come from the “hand” of the Lord. Leaving matters to the Lord means just that – don’t seek revenge yourself. When you pray, leave it in the hands of the Lord. That is essential to having peace. No matter how hurtful the attacks or painful the experience, God is a sovereign God Who knows exactly what happened and has the answer to it all – trust Him!
- The request for God’s help – verse 26
- The reason he has – verse 27
- The rejoicing which he desires to have – verse 28
- The result he desires for his adversaries – verse 29
- The response of praise – verse 30
- The reassurance of God’s salvation – verse 31
God does “stand at the right hand of the poor.” His justice sees all that has been done, and He will vindicate the righteous and judge the wicked in His way and in His time.
