You have tested my thoughts and examined my heart in the night. You have scrutinized me and found nothing wrong. I am determined not to sin in what I say. I have followed your commands, which keep me from following cruel and evil people. My steps have stayed on your path; I have not wavered from following you.
Psalm 17:3-5 NLT
Resolve. The psalmist clearly indicates his deliberate intention to not sin, to stay on the straight and narrow path without swerving to the right or to the left. Like Job, the psalmist believes his unwavering faithfulness in following God’s precepts will lead to him being vindicated. Not only will he be found “not guilty” by a jury of his peers, but, in fact, he believes he will be exonerated.
Have you yourself ever maintained both this level of confidence and the unswerving, single-minded focus on a God-honoring lifestyle? We often think we have been wrongly attacked, but how often are we rightfully bold enough to step out on faith to say to God, “Yo, God, Ive done everything you asked. Please deliver me from the attacks of the enemy.” Maybe each of us should resolve to walk in a close connection with the Holy Spirit such that we would be found blameless before our accusers.🚦
