Summer with the Psalms

Monday 10th June 2024


“O Lord, why do you stand so far away? Why do you hide when I am in trouble? The wicked arrogantly hunt down the poor. Let them be caught in the evil they plan for others. For they brag about their evil desires; they praise the greedy and curse the Lord. The wicked are too proud to seek God. They seem to think that God is dead. Yet they succeed in everything they do. They do not see your punishment awaiting them. They sneer at all their enemies. They think, “Nothing bad will ever happen to us! We will be free of trouble forever!” Their mouths are full of cursing, lies, and threats. Trouble and evil are on the tips of their tongues. They lurk in ambush in the villages, waiting to murder innocent people. They are always searching for helpless victims. Like lions crouched in hiding, they wait to pounce on the helpless. Like hunters they capture the helpless and drag them away in nets. Their helpless victims are crushed; they fall beneath the strength of the wicked. The wicked think, “God isn’t watching us! He has closed his eyes and won’t even see what we do!” Arise, O Lord! Punish the wicked, O God! Do not ignore the helpless! Why do the wicked get away with despising God? They think, “God will never call us to account.” But you see the trouble and grief they cause. You take note of it and punish them. The helpless put their trust in you. You defend the orphans. Break the arms of these wicked, evil people! Go after them until the last one is destroyed. The Lord is king forever and ever! The godless nations will vanish from the land. Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them. You will bring justice to the orphans and the oppressed, so mere people can no longer terrify them.”


‭‭Psalms‬ ‭10‬:‭1‬-‭18‬ ‭NLT‬‬



Pastor Tim’s Reflection


Have you ever played Hide and Seek when growing up? Did you ever pretend that nobody could see you or find out where or what you were Hiding? In todays Psalm the Psalmist reveals Gods supreme authority and favor. The Psalmist seeks for God to come, to reveal himself and over come the evil in the City.


The Psalmist cries out to God “Arise, O Lord! Punish the wicked, O God! Do not ignore the helpless!” Psalm 10:12 When you are distressed cry out to God, he wants to help you, desires to provide assistance for you and give you peace. His Son is available to welcome you home, gather up all your feelings and emotions to assist you in overcoming whatever circumstance you maybe facing today or tomorrow.


We will be better together with Jesus in the immediacy of our problems and in community in prayer. Do you have people praying for you? Whom do you turn to in terms of your immediate needs? Jesus is good, he is always ready and can change your challenge into a victory. Just like he did on the Cross by defeating Sin and Death. Return to Jesus and find help today!


Prayer


Father please be with us as we enter into the day ahead, help us to overcome what ever evil we maybe facing and secure us in your love. Grant us your peace, your patience and your power to stand strong, stay still and know that you are God! Thank you Jesus! Hallelujah! We Praise and pray all these things in your name, Jesus name. Amen


“So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord.”

‭‭Lamentations‬ ‭3:26‬ ‭NLT‬‬
