Reading along with us in the first 30 chapters of Psalm? Here’s today’s reading:

Psalm 11 (ESV)

In the Lord I take refuge;
how can you say to my soul,
“Flee like a bird to your mountain,
2 for behold, the wicked bend the bow;
they have fitted their arrow to the string
to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart;
3 if the foundations are destroyed,
what can the righteous do?”… Continue Reading

  1. Is it wrong to look forward to God’s justice on the wicked and violent? While I pray for the salvation of evil men and women, not only for them, but for God’s glory first and the impact their testimony might have as the gospel goes forth, I also confess to finding solace in the judgment awaiting those who die apart from Christ if they’ve used violence to torment the innocent.

    I saw a video yesterday of a group of teens laughing at a disabled man as he drowned. It’s difficult for me to pray God spares them should they reject His offer of forgiveness, grace and salvation in Christ. Yet I know my theology says I’m no different from them. That’s hard to swallow even as I say it out loud.

  2. I see parallels in Revelation 5:6 where the 7 eyes are the Seven Spirits sent forth into all the earth. They see everything.

    “The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord’s throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
    The Lord trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.”

    His eyes see. His eyes try men. He tries (tests) the righteous (we don’t get off without some testing!)
    His eyes see the wicked and violent and he hates them.

    There is a lot of hate for the wicked in Psalms. Glad that God gave us (the wicked) a way to be righteous before him!

  3. How good it is to know that God is on His throne when the world continues to deteriorate to greater and greater evil. Let us pray that our light shines brighter as the darkness grows in the world!
