This Psalm is a lament about why the wicked seem to prosper. It calls on the Lord to bring the wicked their justice.
All too often in life it seems as if God has disengaged from our lives and has let forces of evil take over.
This Psalm comforts us in the fact that throughout the ages men and women have felt this same abandonment and kept their faith. God has intervened, vs. 14, there is a declaration of faith, vs. 16, and as such we know that in all things God brings victory.
Father, in our darkest moments, when it seems everyone is against us and even You are not for us, help us to faithfully declare, “the Lord is King forever and ever!”
Ps. Richard Botta
