"You defend them..."
Day 42 – Psalm 5
“You defend them…” Psalm 5:11b
THE VICTIMISED RIGHTEOUS
What recourse do the righteous have when they are the victims of the wicked? The righteous are limited as to what they can do when the wicked attack them!
1. They cannot retaliate.
2. They cannot take vengeance.
3. They cannot resort to evil.
The righteous has one perfect recourse. They can cry out to God in prayer. Surely they can trust in the Lord to uphold Divine justice and to come to their rescue.
THE JOY OF THE RIGHTEOUS
When God right wrongs, and when He takes firm action against the wicked, the righteous has every right to rejoice!
“But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name
Be joyful in You!
For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous;
With favour You will surround him as with a shield.”
