The Psalms: Patterns for Prayer & Pointers to Christ

9.23.18 - Psalm 140 - Our God is Just!

Psalm 140 is a difficult psalm. The language in verses 9-11 causes many to reel back in horror and say, "Did David just say what I think he said?" It is imperative that we not miss what these verses teach us about God's character and promise. God is just. He promises to one day right all wrongs. This gives the believer tremendous hope in the present. It precludes us from seeking revenge against those who oppose us. Nowhere does David take it upon himself to punish those who oppose him. Therefore, neither should we! Instead, we are to trust the Lord to punish the wicked and execute justice for the needy (vs. 12). That is where our story is headed. When the King returns, He will right all wrongs. Evil, pain and sadness will be eradicated! The plans of the wicked will not succeed and nothing or no one will frustrate God's Kingdom! In the meantime, when we find ourselves being opposed because of our allegiance to Christ, we are instructed to pray to the Lord for help and justice, and to trust in the Lord to one day put all things right! Furthermore, as we pray we must work hard in the power of the Spirit to be light in our dark world and to boldly speak the Gospel message, the only message that has the power to bring sinners into submission to the One True King!
