Besides comfort, there is perseverance in the Book of Psalms. God is a great vindicator, when we cast our cares to him.
Two more and we’re through with Psalm 119.
153 Consider mine affliction, and deliver me: for I do not forget thy law.
154 Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to thy word.
155 Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not thy statutes.
156 Great are thy tender mercies, O LORD: quicken me according to thy judgments.
157 Many are my persecutors and mine enemies; yet do I not decline from thy testimonies.
158 I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept not thy word.
159 Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O LORD, according to thy lovingkindness.
160 Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.
Four scripture references to verses:
Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.
I will bear the indignation of the LORD, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgement for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness.
And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let us fall now into the hand of the LORD; for his mercies are great: and let me not fall into the hand of man.
2 Samuel 24:14
Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments.
Abundant blessings and have a marvelous day!
The just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.
As always, I welcome your thoughts.
