Once again, David is in trouble. He feels afraid. His first impulse is to flee to escape his problems. He feels under attack. The very things that are supposed to bring justice and righteousness are gone – what are the righteous to do when this happens?
The answer is this – remember God is still on His throne. He still rules sovereignly over all He has made. Nothing escapes His sight. He will act in true justice and righteousness.
David closes with this precious reminder and promise: “For the LORD is righteous; he loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold his face.” May you see His face today!
