“Let his posterity be cut off; in a following generation let their name be blotted out. Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the Lord, and do not let the sin of his mother be blotted out. Let them be before the Lord continually, that He may cut off their memory from the earth; because he did not remember to show lovingkindness, but persecuted the afflicted and needy man, and the despondent in heart, to put them to death.” (Psalm 109:13-16)
Is this not the Lord’s creation? Can the Lord not do with His own what He will? The modern man chafes at the idea that the Lord puts any to death, while in history there are none more violent than the modern man. We may not do to the flesh what they once did, but in our minds we are even more violent. Submit to the Lord and be cleansed of wickedness that you may abide with Him forever.
Lord, I am double-minded. Guide me away from the wickedness that is deeply embedded in me that I may learn to walk in Your ways. Help me, O Lord, to see in You the only hope of Glory that I may abide in You as You abide in me. Teach me Your ways that I may humbly walk in them and not presume to judge You, but know always that You alone are worthy to judge. Do not cut me off from Your salvation.
Lord Jesus, You are the sure hope for all who see the truth that this age is filled with wickedness. One day it will all pass away and there will be a new heaven and a new earth. Lead me to learn the Father’s will from Your example without judging what You ask me to do. Guide me in the way of life that I may be lifted up from the madness of this world. In all things teach me to do what brings the Father glory. Amen.
