In Psalm 17, David offers up his righteous life to his Lord as proof of his faith, desiring that God would vindicate him with a wondrous show of love. He wants God to confront his enemies, and contrasts their merely earthly desires with his own desire to see the face of the Lord. David has so closely aligned his life and desires with God’s that he boldly expects the Lord to vindicate him. This should challenge us: only when we follow him in his life-changing pursuit of holiness can we expect to be the apple of God’s eye. But as saints believing in Jesus and indwelt by the Holy Spirit, this is exactly what our Christian life should be filled with: heartfelt prayers of obedience and trust.
