Have you ever experienced a bad signal on your radio or television? Or maybe you have gone through a “dead spot” with your cell phone and the connection was dropped. A similar thing happens in life when wicked people around us exert influence that blurs our spiritual clarity. This is nothing new. David describes this phenomenon in this psalm and even structured the psalm’s verses to reflect this spiritual static. But the psalm ends on a high note as David reminds us that God runs the world!
