Psalm Saturday 9c

I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvelous works.  I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.  When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.  For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right.  Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever. O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetualend: and thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.  But the LORD shall endure forever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.  And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.  The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.  And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

Psalm 9:1-10

This Psalm tells us about Praising the Lord.  It then reminds us of what will eventually happen to the enemies of the Lord.  “They shall fall and perish at thy presence.  It is an interesting contrast.  As Christians who know the Lord, we are waiting for His appearance.  His appearance is precious and important to us.  We are even told to look for Him and to love His appearing.  But the wicked are not so.  They fall and perish at His very presence.  Just being in the presence of the Lord destroys the wicked.  We need to be thankful that we have a truly blessed hope!
