Bible Text: Psalm 10:12-18
TOPIC: THE LORD IS KING FOREVER
“The LORD is King for ever and ever; the nations will perish from his land.” Psalm 10:16, NIV
Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. The moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward justice. True peace is not merely the absence of tension but the presence of justice.”
It is comforting to know that God is the great and eternal King of the universe whose government does not ignore the concern of the helpless, nor does it tolerate the cruelty of the wicked. He administers justice and rules with impartiality. There is no prejudice in Him. He helps the helpless, fathers the fatherless and defends the defenseless. The wicked will perish before the King of kings as He dispenses eternal judgments and rewards when time shall be no more. So, to involve in wickedness is to face the judgment and punishment of God.
When God rises in judgment, He does so that justice can prevail amidst earthly mortals; for His fear to be instilled in men; and for His people to receive His help to fulfill their destiny. You can secure the help of the King of kings by seeking Him in prayer. Are you a victim of injustice? Take it to the Lord.
Insight: The greatest help anyone can get is the help of God.
Prayer: Lord, disable and overthrow the dominion of evildoers in my life and in the land.
