Checking in with our Psalms 7 now a brand new Chapter in Psalms, and it has David being chased by other Jewish tribes, in this case Cush who were bringing false charges against David.
Psa 7:1 A psalm of David, which he sang to the LORD concerning Cush of the tribe of Benjamin. I come to you for protection, O LORD my God. Save me from my persecutors—rescue me!
Psa 7:2 If you don’t, they will maul me like a lion, tearing me to pieces with no one to rescue me.
Psa 7:3 O LORD my God, if I have done wrong or am guilty of injustice,
Psa 7:4 if I have betrayed a friend or plundered my enemy without cause,
Psa 7:5 then let my enemies capture me. Let them trample me into the ground and drag my honor in the dust.
So we have David here appealing to God, on the basis David has clean intentions, but his enemies don’t care about that, they just want him dead and they are hunting him.
Since David is not given any justice from the government, he is appealing to the ultimate Judge here, God.
This is a reminder that no government is perfect, just like back then when David was running away from Saul and the tribe of Cush, right here today, Governments often get it wrong.
We should not put our trust in the “state” to be flawless in their judgements, because we will likely be disappointed.
You could argue that governments have mishandled COVID, juries have delivered unfair verdicts over the years, and governments can be a&nd often are corrupt. That’s not to say that we shouldn’t obey their laws, but also to remember, that the only place where we will find ultimate justice is in God, who sees everything.
