Psalm 35


In my early twenties, I enjoyed watching a TV series called The Equalizer. A retired intelligence agent used the skills from his former career to exact justice on behalf of innocent victims of evil. The show eventually got too violent for me and I had to turn it off (modern versions of it are even worse). However, there’s something appealing about the idea of the Equalizer. We long to see evil punished and the innocent vindicated. That’s where Psalm 35 helps us. It says, When enemies attack, turn to (not into) the Equalizer.
