Reading the Psalms is a good place to learn more about God and more about mankind. The writers use poetry to describe God and to show how we can praise Him, complain to Him, ask Him for relief and how to make promises to Him.
Often times, I have found myself to be more of a complainer (more than I realized) to God. The book of Psalms is a good place to go when you feel like this. When you feel like people (or circumstances) have done you wrong, check out the writing of David; he puts it all into perspective.
No matter what the struggle or complaint is about, God sees it. Don't think that the word spoken about you God doesn't hear; He sees all, hears all and knows all.
Do you think that people didn't come against David? A king, or any person in leadership for that fact, has been (and will continue to be) under attack.
But for the one who seeks God and His righteousness, vindication will come from Him and Him alone.
(Psalm 12:5) "Because the poor are plundered and the needy groan, I will now arise," says the LORD. "I will protect them from those who malign them."
God has given us the promise today that He gives relief to those who are victimized. It is His intent to arise and deliver victims to safety.
That right there is a promise worth praising Him for today! No matter what others say or do, God WILL have the last Word!
(Hope you are reading the Psalms with me in this journey to read the Bible thru in 2017 and allowing His Word to change you. I've been changed today.)
