Today’s Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 18 November 2022

The psalmist calls upon God to fight on his behalf against people who want to harm him unjustly. He appeals to the Lord (The Almighty God), the righteous Judge of heaven and earth against his enemies who hate and persecute him. Which weapons of war does David request God to use in his defence (vs.1‐3)? God is a warrior. Read vs.4‐8 again and identify the requests David made against those pursuing him. How does this compare with Romans 12:17‐20?

In the circumstances that David found himself, it is human to cry out for justice from God against the enemies. We appeal for justice when we encounter social‐economic injustices or we are deprived of our basic rights or when we spot oppression, disempowerment, corruption, greed and other social injustice. The cry for justice is consistent with the human nature. Faced with injustice, it is instructive to remember that there is a dependable God who loves us.

Contrast the injustice meted out to (against) David by his enemies with how he handled them when they were in need (vs.13‐14). Let us remember that amidst injustice, God remains our Salvation and strong Defender, worthy of praise and adoration (vs.9‐10).

Practice/Word Application
So what? In times of trouble, struggles or when facing injustice, remember to let the Lord fight for you.

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
• Thank You Lord, for fighting on my behalf and delivering me from all my oppressors.

Offer a prayer of faith in line with
Exodus 12:13; Luke 19, 20; Romans 11; Psalms 123
