Midday Devotion 3/30/09

13 Why does the wicked man revile God?
Why does he say to himself,
"He won't call me to account"?

14 But you, O God, do see trouble and grief;
you consider it to take it in hand.
The victim commits himself to you;
you are the helper of the fatherless.

15 Break the arm of the wicked and evil man;
call him to account for his wickedness
that would not be found out.

Psalm 10:13-15

Glory to God in the highest and on earth, peace, goodwill, to all people. We praise You, we bless You, we worship You, we glorify You, we give thanks to You for Your great glory. Grace, mercy and peace from God our Father and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

As we contemplate the righteousness of our Lord, as we contemplate His mercy and compassion unto the world, that love that He has for each and every one of His children, we know that the wicked shall not be left to stand for all time and in all places, that God, with His mighty arm, will break off the arm of those who would use their hands, would use their arms of strength to inflict their torment, their torture, their chaos, upon thee weak or the fragile, upon those who seek the Lord’s hope but find the wickedness and evil of men. It’s a matter of trusting in God, trusting in His time and His plan, knowing that through Him all good things shall come to pass, knowing that through Him unrighteousness shall not dwell on this Earth for all times. He shall protect the poor and the fatherless, the captives and the oppressed, those who are taken hostage by wicked men who seek nothing more than to work evil throughout this world. God hears their cries, He sees their plight, He sees their struggles each and every step of the way, and He guides them and He protects them through all things, His justice never far off. He reaches out and touches the souls of those who feel the most pain, the most anguish in this world. And He works through them, through the power of His Holy Spirit to give them comfort, and He offers unto those who inflict themselves upon others, in such wicked ways, His justice is never far off. His righteousness is never far from us, if we trust in Him, in all things and through all things.
