Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with me;
fight against those who fight against me!
Take hold of shield and buckler
and rise for my help!
Draw the spear and javelin
against my pursuers!Say to my soul,
“I am your salvation!”
We don’t have to fight for ourselves, God does that. It is a good thing for Christians to stand up for others, to ensure they are treated fairly, but we don’t have to seek Justice for us, the Lord will do that. Just relax, if someone is fighting against you, if you’re in the right, God will ultimately take care of it. If they have a point, be willing to listen… and (as is usually the case) if it’s a mix of both, you don’t have to sort out what’s right, Jesus has it covered.
