This short devotion titled "True Justice Comes from the LORD" is based on our study of Psalm 7 on March 25, 2022. While we may not see justice meted out in this sinful world, we can be sure that the LORD will bring justice to bear on all people on the last day. The only way we can survive His justice is through Christ's work for us. Thanks be to the LORD!
In episode 16 of our chronological study of the Psalms we take a look at Psalm 7. Join Pastors Neal Radichel and Nathanael Mayhew as they work through this Psalm together to explore the depth and richness of God's inspired Word. This Psalm will highlight the righteousness of God, as well has His justice, as well as the wickedness of mankind. It also is a plea to the LORD to deliver God's people from the injustice of the world. We invite you to open your Bible and join us in the study of God's Word!
In this 15th episode in our chronological study of the Psalms we look at Psalm 54. David is still on the run from Saul, and has an opportunity to kill him, but refuses to (1 Samuel 26). This Psalm alternates between a prayer to the LORD (v.1-3,5b-6) and a confession of his faith in the LORD (v.4-5a,7). It is a prayer for vindication against his enemies, but this request is not based on subjective feelings, but is turned over to the LORD who judges in “truth” or “faithfulness.” What a wonderful example of what our attitude toward others should be in our own lives, which stems from our trust in the LORD's power and righteousness.
Psalm 22 is a "Messianic Psalm" which means that it describes the work of the Messiah. By inspiration through the Holy Spirit, David looks 1,000 years into the future to describe the crucifixion of Jesus on Calvary and what it means for sinners. The Gospel writers will quote from Psalm 22 to show how it was fulfilled as they see Jesus crucified for them and for the sins of the world. Join us in this amazing description of the work of Jesus, our Messiah!

Psalm 17 is a prayer of David that we might call a prayer of vindication. David is suffering unjustly and looking for justice. Justice from God. His prayer is that the LORD would deliver him and continue to protect him. In the end he acknowledges that the future of the unbelieving world is empty, but that the Christian's hope is true satisfaction with God in heaven.

Living in a fallen world, we may often feel abandoned. Not only by the people around us, but even by God. David wrestled with this in his own life, but ultimately comes back to the words and promises of God which assure the child of God that God will never forsake His children!
