Vindicate me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation; Oh, deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man!
For You are the God of my strength; why do You cast me off? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
Oh, send out Your light and Your truth! Let them lead me; let them bring me to Your holy hill and to Your tabernacle.
Then I will go to the altar of God, to God my exceeding joy; and on the harp I will praise You,o God, my God. Psalm 43.1-4
David wanted justice against those who sought to harm him, but he did not keep shouting at God for help. No, he didn’t do that. He knew the correct way.
He was aware that for justice to be done, it would take much more than prayers and requests. It would be necessary to use a living and practical faith. This is why he said he would go to the Altar, which was his joy.
Many want justice, but run from the Altar, because for these people, the Altar is not a cause for joy, but a weight on their shoulders. This is why they never see justice being done.
On the other hand, they are humiliated and wronged without anyone defending them. For the Righteousness of God is done by faith alone, and faith does not exist without the Altar!
God bless you!
