Psalm 9:3 & 4
My enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you. For you
have upheld my right and my cause; you have sat on your throne, judging righteously.
We saw David praise God for granting mankind the role of caretaker
but, now, David's praise gets personal. He praises God for His active role in the life
of His child as He fought on behalf of David and his enemies were defeated. This song
shows us one of the things that makes us, as Christians, unique and that is the personal
relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Many religions have a "god" that sits on a
throne and is detached from the affairs of men but only through Jesus is it possible to
have the personal touch of the one and only true God in our daily lives. In Christ, we
have more reason to sing songs of praise than anyone in the world because we know that
God is active in our lives in a personal way. That, my friends, is amazing!
