Psalm 7:11

Psalm 7:11

Psalm 7:11 “God is a righteous judge,”

[You are absolutely right in your decisions, Lord, you are absolutely certain to judge correctly, you are absolutely sure to do so at the right time. As you did not draw back from crushing your own Son in your righteous wrath, so you will not hesitate to judge all sin at the exactly right time with truth and righteousness, wisdom and impartiality.]

“a God who expresses his wrath every day.”

[Praise you that you move in your wrath constantly, consistently, even now! Today you will move against the evil in the world, holding it back, judging evil-doers, convicting us of our sin, moving us inexorably towards the judgment day. And we, as followers of Jesus, having entered the shelter of your forgiveness, know that on judgment day we will be declared righteous in Christ, forgiven and cleansed. In this we can rest, praise and obey. And call others to enter this shelter.

To you, Lord of All, King of Glory, Shepherd of sinners, God of Grace, Judge of evil, Ruler of Righteousness, to you we bow, to you we give glory, to you we come: open, transparent, humbled, wholehearted and desiring to be obedient. I give you glory with all my mind, soul and strength. Today may you be the ruler of my heart, the King of my thoughts, the Lord of my actions. May you be exalted, praised and glorified in my life today.]
