When Wrong Happens
Today's reading: Psalm 58:1-11
Before David took the throne as king of Israel, he was on the run for his life from an irrational and unbalanced king, Saul. I can't fully imagine how awful David's situation must have been. Yet he was able to stand strong and remain focused, in large part because of his constant and candid communication with God. Here in Psalm 58, David is holding nothing back. He pours out his frustrations to God about the sin taking place against him and around him, and then he concludes his conversation by expectantly asking God to right the situation.
Is it your practice to talk candidly with God about the wrong and unjust things taking place around you and/or to you? How does putting these wrongs into words help you stay focused on God and His Word and respond rightly? Tami
