not my fault

Psalm 59:3-5 (JDV)

Psalm 59:3 Because notice, Yahveh, they have set an ambush for me. Powerful men attack me, but not because of any failure or rebellion of mine.
Psalm 59:4 For no fault of mine, they run and take up a position. Awake to help me, and take notice.
Psalm 59:5 You, Yahveh God of Armies, are the God of Israel. Rise up to punish all the nations; do not show favor to any wicked traitors. Selah

not my fault

David would know failure and guilt and shame, but he also had times like this, when he did all the right things, and still experienced crisis and threat of death.

Likewise, we believers in Christ will have crisis moments, not tied to any sin or rebellion on our part, but simply because we are in Christ. These are times that test the quality of our commitment. In such times, we need only stretch out our hands and take hold of the lifeline Christ has prepared for us. He knows what it is like to suffer though innocent.

Lord, rescue us from the plans of the enemy.
