Psalm 10: “The Wicked”
As we discussed yesterday, this psalm is a continuation of the 9th psalm. This psalm focuses on the wickedness of man, and we see how David continues his plea for justice. You see this throughout most of of the psalm, then he quickly shifts to praise for His majesty in verses 16-18. David asks the questions that I’m sure a lot of us have asked in the past. Whether you are a Christian or not, I think we all want to know why the wicked prosper. The Christian wants to know why the wicked can curse God, and seemingly nothing happens to them. While that may be a thought that crosses our minds, we must be careful to question the Lord. We also must shift, like David did, proclaiming God’s mercy and justice against the wicked. We must also remember that we were also once enemies of God, and were marked as wicked before we were washed clean by the blood of Jesus. With this in mind, our attitude should shift to thanksgiving and praise. Will you join me as I remember my identity in Christ?
