Meditations in the Psalms

August 4th

Psalm 94:1-7

Romans 12:17-21 urges us not to take revenge on those who have mistreated us or harmed us or done evil against us. The reason? Vengeance belongs to the Lord – we must leave matters with Him. We are to overcome evil with good. But, we still ask the questions recorded in this passage – “LORD, how long shall the wicked triumph?” God’s judgment is coming, and the entire tribulation period is regarded as the day of God’s wrath and vengeance upon this world.

  1. The request for God to act – verse 1
  2. The reward which God will bring – verse 2
  3. The realization that God is delaying His answers – verses 3-4
  4. The respect that lack for God’s people – verses 5-6
  5. The reasoning of their hearts argues that God will not see or do anything about it – verse 7

How mistaken the wicked are! God will bring every thought, word, and action into judgment. The wicked are facing a horrible future, the judgment of hell itself.
