This devotional is timely with the war against the Ukraine. May we pray this for the Ukrainians in their distress. There are many, many evangelical Christians there.
Psalm 7:6 “Arise, O LORD, in your anger; rise up against the rage of my enemies.”
[Praise you, Lord God, our Heavenly Father, that you hate sin and injustice; that your anger, like an avenging fire, is directed against all evil and wrong-doing, against the wrath and rage of your enemies. Praise you that you act against sin at the right time and in the right way, whether it be in us or our enemies.]
“Awake, my God; decree justice.”
[This is our hope: that you, O God, are just, that what you decree and judge will be right, pure and good, done in full knowledge of peoples’ motives, thoughts and deeds. Therefore, we can trust you fully.]
Psalm 7:7 “Let the assembled peoples gather around you. Rule over them from on high; let the LORD judge the peoples.”
[In you, O Jehovah (LORD), is safety; you only are our refuge. You look down from your throne and see the hearts of every person on earth, you observe all that they do, so you know and judge correctly. You are the One we can trust.]
