Psa 7:1-17 is a prayer for divine vindication under slander. Slander reflects Satan's character (Joh 8:44, Rev 12:9-10). Slander has destroyed churches (Gal 5:15). David illustrates Christ being slandered though He was sinless (1Pe 2:21-23). If you seek to follow and serve Christ, you will be slandered. Lessons: (1) The lord is our safe refuge - casah under injurious slander (Heb 6:18, Psa 7:1-2, 1Pe 5:8, Exo 20:16). (2) Consider if you are guilty of the accusations (Psa 7:3-5). Unjust criticism can be a blessing if we get corrected. (3) Entrust yourself to the court of heaven (Psa 7:6-8, Gen 31:39, Heb 12:5-6). God will bring Justice to light. (4) Our personal relationship to God is with His Grace and Justice (Psa 7:9-13, Jer 17:10, Psa 11:4). (5) In every act of evil are consequences for the doer (Psa 7:14-16). (6) We need to rejoice in knowing God and His ways, and praise Him while we put confidence in Him (Psa 7:17, 1Pe 1:6-9, Job 13:15). Vindication is in the hands of God if we commit ourselves to Him.
