  • 1 [A Psalm of Asaph.] God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:
    2 "How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah
    3 Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
    4 Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked."
    5 They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
    6 I said, "You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you;
    7 nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince."
    8 Arise, O God, judge the earth; for you shall inherit all the nations!

Thinking & Understanding
God is the Judge of judges (rulers of the world). Every ruler goes through life as if they are the masters of history, but this is a great delusion. Not only does God, who sees and knows all, rise up throughout history and hand out severe judgement, but he will also reveal that the whole world is his through the ultimate judgement. This is our father. Therefore, as the people of God have authority, we must not surrender to rulers who do not fear God. We must stand on the side of the powerless and plead for God’s righteous judgement (vv. 1-8).

Who is God?
Vv. 1, 8 God is the King who rules all the nations of the world, and the Judge who judges all the kings of the world. However much injustice you suffer in this world, appeal to God with your grievances. God will deal out righteous judgement.

What lesson is God teaching me?
Vv. 5-7 The rulers of the world do not understand the justice and righteousness they must know and practice, nor do they even try to do so. They only know how to exercise the privileges and power of authority they have been delegated by God, but neglect the responsibilities of that calling. All those who rise to such a position believe they will stay in that position eternally, but death will make them all return to their original places.

Prayer
Lord, help us to show the kind of love that is manifested in actions towards our weak neighbours, whom you have sent to our side to serve and protect.
