Psalm 119.87

Near to death

"They almost destroyed me on earth, but as for me, I did not forsake Your precepts" [Psalm 119.87 NASB]

The people who were diligently pursuing David in [Psalm 119.86] were very close to accomplishing their will. However, David decided that no matter how many people there were gathered against him or who was no longer with him, he would be known - among the righteous and the unrighteous alike - as the man who steadfastly clung to God's precepts even if it meant leaving this life.

What came across to me in this portion of Scripture was the continuing relevance of God's word. His written and spoken word is His character; therefore we can trust in Him at all times.

Do you feel that your life is ebbing away and that the enemy, unlike Job, has a free reign to do as he pleases?

In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus referred to that particular time, as, "the hour of the power of darkness” [Luke 22:53].

Are you there?

There is currently, as there always has been, a providential restriction placed upon the designated powers of darkness; therefore, like Job and in relation to your life, he can only go so far and no further.

In other words, your life is safe until God decides it is time to move. That decision has not been allocated to anyone else, no matter what they may imply or say.

So whatever is happening or man has said will occur, be at peace. The Greater One is interested in you and your well-being. [David McArdle]
