SEEK DAILY (NBC) DAILY DEVOTIONAL OCTOBER 8, 2021 (GOD HAS EXECUTED JUDGMENT)
TOPIC: GOD HAS EXECUTED JUDGMENT
Bible Text: Psalm 9: 13-20
SCRIPTURE: The Lord is known by his acts of justice; the wicked are ensnared by the works of their hands. Psalm 9:16, NIV
A coup de-tat led by General Mamman Vatsa was aborted in Nigeria years back and those involved were sentenced to death by firing squared. The United Nations and others pleaded to convert their judgement to years of imprisonment but the government declined. The action was later regretted.
The psalmist pleaded with God, the righteous Judge, to look at his persecution and rescue him so that he can declare God’s praise. It was discovered that nations had conspired together but had been caught in their craftiness, so he was encouraged that God is faithful and He will not forget the needy and afflicted.
The integrity of God is embedded in His personality, and cannot be compromised. No wonder, in Psalm 9:17 the psalmist says, all the wicked and all nations that forget God shall be thrown into hell. Jesus is the only way and means by which we can get to God and escape His wrath.
The opportunity is still open while the grace lasts. Make your way right with God because no one can stop His judgement. Part of His judgement is commending and rewarding good works. Therefore, make sure you engage in good works today.
Insight: You cannot be unjust and enjoy God. Be just.
Prayer: “The Lord will keep you from harm – He will watch over your life… your going out and your coming henceforth” (Psalm 121: 7- 😎.
