In the beginning of the book of Psalms, it is evident that David has faced much conflict. In chapter 7 the opposition is coming from a fellow Israelite. David takes great comfort in the judgment of his God. The idea of judgment can be a scary one, if the idea is that I will be judged. Yet, if the focus is on a God who sees how others are mistreating you, the idea of judgment is a hopeful one. David actually asks God if he has done anything wrong in this situation, which is a very brave question. David is confident in his own innocence, but even more confident in God’s righteous judgment.
