These psalms are all about how God fights battles alongside and for us and gives us aid against enemies. In the midst of George Floyd’s death, among others, I sit here wondering how God is working in the midst of this. He helps us fight enemies, and justice and vengeance are His, but what is he doing now? What words can I say or actions can I take and what should I leave to God? It is confusing and saddening, but taking some sort of action and saying something is better than remaining silent. As Christians, yes we have God working for us and in us, but we also have the responsibility to not stay silent and stand for and with our black brothers and sisters.
28Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
29He made the storm be still,
and the waves of the sea were hushed.
