"Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!"
Day 101 – Psalm 14
“Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!” Psalm 14:7
A BRUISING BATTLE
The battle with atheism is never academic. He had to battle atheism on at least two fronts:-
a) Atheism was an ideology that some had bought into.
b) It may not be based on good Biblical knowledge, but it was still an ideology that drew many.
a) Wicked deeds were perpetrated by those who rejected God.
b) They thought nothing about how they harmed people.
DOING THE NECESSARY
Though the battle was hard, David never failed to do his part. Two things were done consistently.
1. He would declare his faith in God boldly.
2. He would expose the wicked activities of those who had rejected God.
A DEEP LONGING FOR DIVINE DELIVERANCE
There was something else that David could do. The following text reveals yet another thing that he sought to do.
“Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!
When the LORD brings back the captivity of His people.
Let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.”
