I hate those who are double-minded, but I love Your law [Psalm 119.113 NASB]
We live in a world where injustices occur at an ever increasing rate. Most of us have experienced this to be true, and in the majority of situations, they are very difficult to understand, and then, when justice is prolonged or never even manifest, the hurtful effects, financial, moral or spiritual, are extremely hard to tolerate.
This is not a new problem. David, as a man after Gods heart, was continually upset at the wide-spread influence of the wicked, who, with their impure thoughts and schemes, which have been carefully manufactured in hell, set out to deceive and destroy the righteous?
One of the essential qualities of the mature believer is that they are not easily moved from what they have proved to be true. Therefore, David was wholehearted, whether in his untiring devotion to God or in his undeviating attitude to the wicked.
Why did David behave like this? Some of his friends, who used to follow God with him, were now intermingling with the wicked and had turned against him with Satanic deliberation and viciousness.
Rather than let him do what he desired, they, like the religious leaders in the time of the Lord, were setting many traps along his path in a determined effort to ensnare him and destroy him.
How does the man of God handle this situation? He stays focused on God. Every morning he outlines a list of his godly priorities, which he then, purposefully sets out to accomplish.
David said, I will lead a life of integrity I will refuse to look at anything vile and vulgar I will reject perverse ideas and stay away from every evil I will not endure conceit and pride My daily task will be to ferret out criminals and free the city of the Lord from their grip [Psalm 101.2-8 NLT]
Are you able to agree with David? If not, the name on the avenue to divine approval is entitled "Separation" and the road, which leads to the
divine anointing, is called "Holiness". [David McArdle]
