O Lord my God, if I have done this, if there is injustice in my hands,
If I have rewarded evil to my friend, or have plundered him who without cause was my adversary,
Let the enemy pursue my soul and overtake it, and let him trample my life down to the ground and lay my glory in the dust. Selah. Psalms 7:3-5
David checks himself and his own motivations as he implores the Lord to come to his rescue. He says to God ‘if I have done something wrong, I will accept Your correction… go for it Lord.’ What a transparent heart that values righteousness.
Do I see God as a righteous judge executing fairness every day? Is my view of God that of the Psalmist: O let the evil of the wicked come to an end, but establish the righteous; For the righteous God tries the hearts and minds. My shield is with God,
Who saves the upright in heart. God is a righteous judge, and a God who has indignation every day. I really need to grow in this area are recognize afresh the righteous nature of God!
Lord, you are a consuming fire in many ways. I have taken the liberty and privilege of personal fellowship with you as my Heavenly Father, and discounted Your righteousness. Forgive me for that. Help me walk through today with a heightened sense of Your support and power for any righteous cause I take.
