Sometimes, the ungodliness – the injustice – the deception – the oppression – it all becomes quite overwhelming (vs 1-2.)
I take comfort, however, in the words of Solomon in Ecclesiastes 1:9. “There is nothing new under the sun.”
The darkness we experience today is the same darkness Solomon experienced and David experienced and Joseph experienced. Why is that comforting? Because the solution is also the same.
The answer to deception is truth (John 14:6.)
The answer to darkness is light (John 8:12.)
It is truth and light that the psalmist said would deliver him from all the wrongs mentioned in verses 1 and 2.
Jesus. Jesus has always been and will always be the answer.
Just give me Jesus.
