Blessed is the Word, כ
Why does God come to our rescue? Why do we remain? Read Psalm 119:81-88.
My soul faints with longing for your salvation, but I have put my hope in your word. My eyes fail, looking for your promise; I say, “When will you comfort me?” Though I am like a wineskin in the smoke, I do not forget your decrees. How long must your servant wait? When will you punish my persecutors? The arrogant dig pits to trap me, contrary to your law. All your commands are trustworthy; help me, for I am being persecuted without cause. They almost wiped me from the earth, but I have not forsaken your precepts. In your unfailing love preserve my life, that I may obey the statutes of your mouth.
Psalms 119:81-88 NIV
So many times the psalmist asked to be rescued and desires to know when God is going to come to his aid against his enemies. Then there is verse 88. Why does God save us in the first place? Do that we can demonstrate our love for him through our obedience. Do we love him? Does that show in our obedience?
