A Reflection on Psalm 10
Sometimes God I wonder where on earth you are?
When the going gets tough – I feel like you are gone.
Here is my situation – that highlights how I feel.
I can see that there are people who get away with rejecting you,
They do this arrogantly,
They look like they are succeeding,
Everything is going their way.
I have felt this personally,
With the enemies that have looked successful,
And, have openly rejected you,
Thinking that they are invincible.
This person’s main weapon is contempt,
He even thinks he is better than you God!
Why do you put up with this?
Do you really see what he is doing?
He is a destroyer,
Full of lies,
Arrogant and proud,
Full of his own ability,
Preying on me when I was weak,
Watching for ways to trap me,
Attacking me and my family.
And, it looks like he won,
He continues on his way,
Thinking that he is the righteous one,
“God won’t see my lies”.
Please wake up Lord,
You know what is going on here,
Show me that you are my protector,
Demonstrate your power,
So that he can see it’s you and not him,
Who is really in control.
I am a broken person God,
But, I know that you care for me,
You are bringing justice to this world,
I will leave this to you,
Because, you will get it right,
Restoring everything how it should be,
Accountability is a frightening thing,
To the arrogant and the vindictive,
Their day is coming.
Our world is in your hands – Lord,
I pray and you listen,
I know that you hate arrogance,
Especially when it targets weakness,
I put my trust this morning,
In how you will put it right.
