Vindicate me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation; rescue me from deceitful and wicked men. You are God my stronghold….Send forth your light and your truth, let them guide me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell. Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
With his enemies pressing him, and struggling with feelings of abandonment, David still seeks God for rescue and hope. Walking God’s way in a world that has chosen life that is anti-God, can be exhausting. Christians often struggle with serving and loving each other. But…where do we turn for help, for relief, for hope? We put our hope in God and we praise Him. He may not take the struggle away, but He will provide peace therein.
