“The righteous will rejoice when he sees the vengeance; He will wash his feet in the blood of the wicked. And men will say, “Surely there is a reward for the righteous; surely there is a God who judges on earth!” (Psalm 58:10-11)
In a world filled with wickedness, it is hard to distinguish where justice lies. The Lord knows, but we do not see His hand of justice at work. The Lord is patient, but we, in our limited lifetimes want revenge now. The Lord will judge and He will judge righteously. Just trust in the Lord in all of His ways and know that He will lead all who turn to Him into the ways of righteousness.
Lord, I am easily led in so many directions by all of the wickedness in this world. Guide the thoughts of my mind and the attitude of my heart that I would hold fast to the truth You have revealed. Lead me, O Lord, in the way I should go and then help me walk in this way. Grant that I would see Your hand upon this world and know that You are working all things together for good to those who love You.
Lord Jesus, in great love You have come to lead as many as would follow You in the way of truth. The world is already judged and You have come for those who will come through You into light and life. Guide my heart this day, O Lord, that I would look to You and Your ways and follow in them as You direct and lead. By Your Holy Spirit, lead me this day. Amen.
