Part 16

Read these verses in their entirety, meditate, praise His Word!

Verses 121 – 128

“I have done judgment and justice; leave me not to mine oppressors.  Be surety for thy servant for good…Mine eyes fail for thy salvation…Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy…I am thy servant; give me understanding…It is time for thee, Lord, to work…Therefore I love thy commandments above gold…I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.”

The oppressors are still present, and the psalmist pleads and prays for God to respond and act now to protect him.  The faithful servant is impatient but declares steadfastly and in humility his love of His laws more than gold, and hatred of  false ways.

Haven’t we on occasion prayed the same thing, asked God to do something, telling Him that the time is now?  Talk to God in humility and remain His loyal servant, commit your course to Him and cling to His Word.
