This psalm is a cautionary tale. When you live among leaders who are corrupt, you can suffer the consequences of their poor decisions. You may have to live under the black cloud they create even though you did nothing to cause it. In the natural world, it usually takes new leadership and time to set things back-to-good. In the spiritual, as this psalm tells us, it takes as long as it takes. In the meantime, the faithful must continue being faithful and doing what they know is right. Trusting that God will set things back-to-good.
I feel like we live in a time, such as this, today. There is so much turmoil in so many different areas, it’s hard to find our balance. As the faithful, we work to keep our faith and to plead to God to help us.
Rise up, Lord, and help us. Rescue us because of your unfailing love. Ps 44:26
