Rise now and Judge the Earth

Psalms 94:1-7 God of vengeance – show Yourself!  Rise now and judge the earth, repay the arrogant as they deserve. Lord, how long will the wicked exult and tread down Your chosen Land? They murder and carry out terror attacks, saying: The Lord does not see, their God pays no heed.  Nahum 1:1-6

Psalms 94:8-11 Take heed yourselves, you most stupid of people; you fools, do you think that the Maker of all things cannot see or hear? Will He, who controls the destiny of nations, not correct them?

            The Instructor of mankind has all knowledge, He knows that the thoughts of everyone are but puffs of wind.

Psalms 94:12-15 Happy is the one whom the Lord instructs, those who receive His Law. They will be rescued from trouble, while the godless fall into a pit of their own making. The Lord will not abandon His people or forsake His chosen Land, for justice and righteousness will again come together and all who love the Lord will experience it.

Psalms 94:16-19 Who is on the Lord’s side against the godless? Who will stand up for Him against evildoers?

            I nearly made the mistake of not trusting the Lord, but He helped me in my  time of trouble , He held me up and His comfort brought me joy.

Psalms 94:20-23 If justice is perverted and mischief is contrived under the cover of the law, that condemns the innocent – then you must not agree with it.

            The Lord will repay the wicked for their injustice, He will destroy them for their misdeeds.

            The Lord is my Rock, in whom I trust, He will give me refuge.
