This psalm is written with such bravery. David asks the Lord to react with justice against the sin and evil actions of his enemy. He also asks the Lord to examine his own heart and if there is fault within him, he asks the Lord to show him. He stands ready to take correction from the Lord at the same time he implores the Lord for help. I admire this so much. David not only show us something about his character, he also fearfully teaches us about God’s sovereignty. Through his many battles and time spent with God, he knows God is just, not only with those around him but also with him personally. We will all have to pass through God’s purifying fire.
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. Psalm 139:23-24
See you tomorrow for psalm 8.
