Our Shield

Today's reading: Psalm 7:1-17

David is broken hearted over the unjust attack on his character by his enemies. In this state, he cries out to God, humbly reminding Him of his right heart and living, asking God to give him justice and then declaring how through it all God will be his refuge and shelter.

When someone wrongs us--treats us unfairly, speaks untruthfully about us, physically harms us—we want justice. Our human nature prompts us to strike back in some manner, but God tells us that He is judge and will make all things right in His timing. Thus David's confident and hope--filled words in verse 10.

"My shield is with God, who saves the upright in heart."

When you experience unjust treatment, do you turn to God as your shield (shelter, refuge, protection)? Why is this so important? How would describe having an “upright heart”? Tami
