121 I have done what is just and right; do not leave me to my oppressors.
122 Give your servant a pledge of good; let not the insolent oppress me.
123 My eyes long for your salvation and for the fulfillment of your righteous promise.
It is clear that the Psalmist was trusting in the Lord.
It is also clear that the oppression, the persecution, the attack was intense.
He cried to the Lord to leave him not to the oppressors.
He cried to the Lord that the oppression would stop.
He longed for the salvation of the Lord.
He longed for the fulfillment of the righteous promise of God.
He declared that he had done was just and right.
Still, in the midst, he declared the truth...and rested on the timing of the Lord.
There are those who seek to oppress us.
Some from without - outside the Body of Christ.
Some from within - the tares that think they are of the Body, yet are of the evil one.
We must speak the Truth.
We must rest in Truth.
We must stand in Truth.
I’m reminded of the passage in Ephesians...stand firm...and having done all to stand, stand!
