Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. But you, O God, will bring down the wicked into the pit of corruption; bloodthirsty and deceitful men will not live out half their years. But as for me, I trust in you. (Psalm 55:22, 23 NIV)
King David was a fierce warrior, dating back keeping watch over his flock. All who have been in Bible Study Fellowship this year, have been enlightened with King David’s life. He was not perfect, however, his dedication to God, with every repentance made, developed a deeper trust in the one and only God. He was a man after God’s own heart. King David dealt with bloodthirsty and deceitful men, as we do today. Only today, many do not understand the underlying force trying to destroy America.
I’m confident God will bring down wicked individuals into the pit of corruption. When God says, “Vengeance is mine,” let God handle. I heard a sermon once- if we handle ourselves, God will let us. I’ve learned my lesson…let God handle, preventing myself from reacting poorly. God is large and in charge…and not one bloodthirsty and deceitful person will go without judgment. We all will be confronted with judgement, the moment we die. Are we trusting in Jesus, casting our cares on the Lord? He promises never to let the righteous fall. Why would anyone not want to trust in Jesus? Could one be misled, slumbering, blinded, or indifferent to world concerns? Are we allowing hurt to control our destiny? Instead…take eyes off people and turn our eyes to Jesus, He will sustain us, in an ever changing society.
In midst of on-going battles between good and evil, we must become fierce warriors in Christ. Ephesians 6 describes the armor of God, and realize we no longer fight against flesh and blood, yet, against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Reason enough to cast our cares on the Lord, and allow Him to sustain us- while He brings down wicked individuals into the pit of corruption. There is always a pay day for corruption and evil done. But as for me- and how about you…Let’s move forward placing our trust In Jesus Christ, becoming fierce warriors.
