Have you Been Falsely Accused?

Psalm 7 King James Version (KJV)

7 O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:

2 Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.

3 O Lord my God, If I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;

4 If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)

5 Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.

6 Arise, O Lord, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.

7 So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.

8 The Lord shall judge the people: judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.

9 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.

10 My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.

11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.

12 If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.

13 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.

14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.

15 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.

16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.

17 I will praise the Lord according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the Lord most high.

Introduction: Have you ever been accused of something that you did not do? There is always the question: How do you prove you Did NOT do something? Young’s Literal Translation from the Hebrew begins this Psalm saying:

7 `The Erring One,' by David, that he sung to Jehovah concerning the words of Cush a Benjamite. As you may have forgotten, I will remind you that King Saul, the first King of Israel, was from the tribe of Benjamin and obviously Cush, a follower of Saul, possibly a close relative, accused David of Treason.

David cries out to God to Deliver Him in this Psalm where he asks God to:

Judge my actions

Judge my Heart

Judge my enemies

David knows that God is Just, that the truth of His actions and heart against the actions and heart of his enemies will deliver him!

So This morning let us Judge the actions of David

Let us Judge the Heart of David

And let us look at the actions of his enemies

Let us also look at the actions of our Enemy the Devil, that old Accuser, who falsely accuses each of us before the the Throne and what God has done to save us!

It is a Joy to be your Pastor,

David dodges a Spear and a false Accusation from King Saul!
