When I call answer me, O God of my vindication. 4:1 To vindicate is to clear from an accusation. I’m sure that we all have experienced being falsely accused or blamed for something that was not our fault. The Eternal knows and sees all, and even when we think the situation is hopeless, He is the one who vindicates us. What about when we are accused rightly? Through Yeshua we receive forgiveness from all of our sins.
Make teshuvah (return) to Him who is able to remove your sins as far as the east is from the west.
Be aware that YHWH has set aside the devout one for himself. 4:4 In troubling times we must remember that we need to wait on Him. We serve Him, not the other way around, and He has separated us for Him and His purpose. We should not go around lamenting our situations as one who has no hope. Our hope is in The Eternal because we serve the Creator of all things and the Judge of all men.
As David says, “In peace and harmony, I lie and sleep; for you, YHWH will make me dwell safe and secure. 4:9. Even when we are threatened by enemies all around, we sleep in peace and harmony because the God we serve keeps us safe and secure.
May you rest secure this Shabbat in the knowledge of His protection.
