Psalm 43 (CSB)
1 Vindicate me, God, and champion my cause against an unfaithful nation; rescue me from the deceitful and unjust person.
2 For you are the God of my refuge. Why have you rejected me? Why must I go about in sorrow because of the enemy’s oppression?
3 Send your light and your truth; let them lead me. Let them bring me to your holy mountain, to your dwelling place.
4 Then I will come to the altar of God, to God, my greatest joy. I will praise you with the lyre, God, my God.
5 Why, my soul, are you so dejected? Why are you in such turmoil? Put your hope in God, for I will still praise him, my Savior and my God.
My Only Vindicator
When will I know when those who would cause me harm have hurt me betrayed me abandoned me and discard me that I am sorrowful for that hurt and I grieve and I am angry for what was done because I have been hurt But for most of my life I have let that fester into rage vengeance and wrath It has taken me all of my life to know that rage is a sin vengeance belongs to you, O Lord and you alone are deserving of wrath But here is the key in you great love you sent your Son so that for your people for the salvation of those you have elected you pour your wrath not on us but on your Son because he is the Worthy Lamb that was slain holy holy holy is he Cleansed my heart of my wickedness in thinking I am God I am not Never will I be you Save us and keep us in your mercy shower us with grace and give us your steadfast love for all of our days I love you Lord thank you for saving me Save those whom I know and care for and love Amen
