Iniquity Flourished

Iniquity Flourished

There are so many countries  throughout the world  —  including our own  —  that are experiencing  the evils  of terrorism,  rapes,  killings,  bombings,  nuclear threats,  and hatred  of every sort.     Jesus even tells us  about the end days  in Matthew 24:12,

Because lawlessness  is increased,  most people’s love  will grow cold. 

That’s awfully obvious  these days.     But,  terribly ugly things  have happened  throughout history  —  and many have felt  those things  would bring about  the LORD’s Judgment Day.     But,  even through  all those evils,  the end hasn’t come yet.     And evil people seem bolder.

God is so patient  and kind  with all of us,  as He has demonstrated  His powers  down through the ages.     That is why  Psalm 92 praises  the LORD  for all His wonders  and then says  in verses 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.

No matter what  we are going through  in this life,  God is always  in control.     Romans 14:8 says,  “Whether we live  or die,  we are the Lord’s”,  and so we know  He cares  for us.

Because God’s  “thoughts  are very deep”,  there is no way  we can understand  what He is doing,  or why He is allowing  bad things  to happen  to His own children.     But,  as we think  about Christ’s life  of suffering,  death,  and resurrection,  we see the ultimate blessing  it was  for us.     So,  we trust the LORD  to bless our lives  in the end, also.

Trusting  God’s will,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  everyone in heaven  praises You  evermore.”

Love,
