PSALM 18:20

PSALM 18:20 The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; According to the cleanness of my hands He has recompensed me.

 

 

THE PSALMIST HAS JUST REVIEWED ALL THE TIMES AND WAYS IN WHICH THE LORD HAS RESCUED HIM FROM ALL SORTS OF THREATENING SITUATIONS. 

THE PSALMIST IS THANKING AND PRAISING GOD FOR DELIVERING HIM FROM HIS ENEMIES, DECLARING THAT THE LORD IS HIS STRENGTH AND HIS FORTRESS, HIS SHIELD, AND SUPPORT.

BECAUSE GOD IS A GOD OF JUSTICE, AS WELL AS MERCY, GRACE, AND LOVE, HE HAS DELIVERED DAVID OUT OF ALL SORTS OF CALAMITIES, REWARDING HIM ACCORDING TO HIS FAITHFULNESS, AND OBEDIENCE TO GOD. HE WILL DO LIKEWISE TO THOSE OF US WHO WALK IN HIS WAYS, IN FAITHFULNESS AND OBEDIENCE. 

WHEN WE LIVE IN RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FATHER, HE WILL BE OUR STRENGTH, OUR FORTRESS, AND SHIELD, JUST AS HE WAS FOR DAVID. WHEN WE WALK IN HIS WILL, WE ARE COVERED BY HIS PROTECTIVE SHIELD. HE WILL RECOMPENSE US IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CLEANNESS OF OUR HANDS/LIFESTYLE.
