A Senseless Man  Has No Knowledge

When we think about  all that has happened  throughout history,  and how all  of the LORD’s prophecies  have been  and are being fulfilled,  it’s more than a mighty wonder.     God controlled history  for thousands  of years  in bringing  to us  the Savior  He promised.     That is unimaginable power,  far beyond  any human capability.     And,  if we really  take the time  to consider  how God  made  so many details  come true,  we shouldn’t  have a shred  of doubt  about God’s control.

If we’re thinking  at all,  God’s almighty power  should make us  have a deep respect  for His power  in our lives  —  and His authority  as our eternal Judge.     When a psalmist considered  so many aspects  of God’s power,  his respect  led him  to write  in Psalm 92:5-9,

How great  are Your works,  O LORD!
Your thoughts  are very deep.
A senseless man  has no knowledge;
Nor does a stupid man  understand this:
That when the wicked  sprouted up  like grass,
And all  who did iniquity  flourished,
It was only  that they might be destroyed  forevermore.
But You,  O LORD,  are on high forever.
For,  behold,  Your enemies,  O LORD,
For, behold,  Your enemies  will perish;
All  who do iniquity  will be scattered.

This psalmist  could see  and realize  that all those  who had no respect  for God  were  “senseless”“stupid”,  and  “wicked”.     Nothing they do  is ever really worthwhile.     Actually,  it is  to their eternal detriment  and demise.     Their evil,  rebellious ways  show that they  are  “senseless”  in realizing  who God really is  and the judgmental power  God has  over all  His creation.     They are even  “senseless”  in despising  God’s love  and gift  of salvation  through faith  in Christ Jesus.

Somehow,  with their few earthly,  supposed rewards,  they imagine  that they are getting away  with their wickedness.     They will even imagine  that God  either does not exist  or does not care  what they do.     That sort of  imagination  is  “stupid”  and  “wicked”  because there is evidence  of God’s power all around us  in all  of creation  —  and in  so many fulfilled prophecies  about our Savior.

God’s children despair  as they see the wicked flourishing  in their wickedness.     It just seems like  the wicked  are always the winners,  having victory  over everything  that is good  and right.     But,  in reality,  that is only  the way  it seems.     The eternal truth is that  “It was only  that they might be destroyed  forevermore.”

God’s judgment  is not really slow  in coming.     Actually,  God’s timing  is always right  —  even though His children  are suffering all sorts  of trials  under the influence  of the wicked.     The end result is that God’s children  will be strengthened  in the true faith,  hope,  and love  —  and all the wicked will  “be destroyed  forevermore”.

As we keep looking  to God’s saving power  and love,  we give Him thanks  and praise  —  for He does all things well.     And,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for refreshing us  in Your word  and grace.”

Love,
Margaret
