Lord, What do You Mean?

When I come across verses like this I get roadblocked and hang out a while having a conversation with the Lord.

Psalm‬ ‭18:25-26‬ ‭ESV‬

“With the merciful you show yourself merciful; with the blameless man you show yourself blameless;”

Me-“Lord, what do you mean you show yourself blameless to the blameless man? Aren’t you blameless regardless? What do you mean by this?”

“...with the purified you show yourself pure;...”

Me-“Lord, aren’t you pure regardless? How do you show yourself to the impure?”

“...and with the crooked you make yourself seem tortuous.”

Me-“My Lord, the nature of being ‘tortuous’ seems so out of character for you. Yet, I know you are a just and vengeful God. Yet, I hear many teachers say, ‘God doesn’t punish today the way he did in the Old Testament.’ But aren’t you the same yesterday, today and tomorrow? If you say you’re tortuous to the wicked then I should believe that. It just seems so much against who we’re told you are. Thank you Father for teaching me. Thank you for helping me to yield to you and your teachings and helping me to lay down any wrong teaching. I love you Abba. You are perfect. You, are King. I exalt your name forever.” ‬

“This God—his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.”

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭18:30‬ ‭ESV‬‬
