“O Lord, God of vengeance, God of vengeance, shine forth! Rise up, O Judge of the earth, render recompense to the proud.” (Psalm 94:1-2)
The proud stand before the Lord and boast of their greatness. They seek their own ends and use the children of the Lord for their own purposes. Generations come and call upon the Lord to stop the proud from their destruction. They who seek the Lord only need to look to see that the proud go to the grave and are remembered no more. Look to the Lord and live humbly in His sight and by His provision.
It is hard Lord to live in an age that is so filled with contention. There are many who seek their own will and do not live according to Your Word. Help me to see that this is but a short age that will come to nothing. You have a purpose for everything; so help me to understand that if I walk in the way You have established for me, I will be uplifted and strengthened according to Your purpose.
Lord Jesus, You have come to save all who turn to You. By grace, You lift all who believe out of the pit to walk upright before the Father. Guide me this day to walk humbly with You knowing that no matter what comes in this life it is but for a short time. Prepare me in the way You have established that I may walk by faith and do what You give me to do all the day long. Amen.
