God’s Timely Judgement


Arise, Lord, do not let mortals triumph;
let the nations be judged in your presence.
20 Strike them with terror, Lord;
let the nations know they are only mortal. Psalm 9:19-20

It’s easy to become disheartened at the rise of wickedness in our culture.

Where is God?

Where is the justice?

When people get away with horrendous crimes and evil, it’s very easy to throw up your hands in despair.

And many do.

But just as we see sin in the Old Testament was eventually judged, so it will be for us. Accordingly, that judgement was brutal.

Recall that there were very few acts of instant justice back then. It happened – as it happens now – but it wasn’t the norm.

No, God’s judgement timetable is quite different than ours.

He is infinitely patient, and then the judgement comes swiftly.

No one’s getting away with anything, including the most heinous crimes.

Those who have the good life of being able to escape prosecution because of corrupt justice systems (and politicians) in this life are in for a surprise.
