DCLM Daily Manna 11 November 2021 Thursday | MESSAGE:
When a military dictator died in office some years ago, some people reportedly danced and jubilated on the streets. Many of them had gloomily assumed that he would be around for another decade making their lives a complete misery. But, suddenly, the dictator was gone. Yet, it is unseemly and uncomely to rejoice when any man dies; but who can question the justice of God?
The psalmist in our text spoke about the reach and spread of God’s power and authority. He is present everywhere. He is the One who can rise and save all the meek of the earth. The “wrath of man” shall ultimately praise Him because He can cause the actions of men to fulfil His will eventually. He can cut off the spirit of princes who, having amassed great riches and power, use it to oppress the poor and powerless.
Surprisingly, man has become the greatest instrument he uses in oppressing his fellow man. Dictators free themselves and place all others in bondage. For years, tyrannical kings and emperors have presented a larger than life image of themselves and used their vast powers to crush anyone who tries to challenge their authority. We should expect God’s justice system to prevail eventually. Believers should not take laws into their hands because vengeance belongs unto Him.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Justice delayed is not justice denied.
THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezekiel 1-2
