What to do when evil seems to have the upper hand…

Sometimes it just seems like evil has the upper hand! Those that belittle righteousness, mock the reality of God, and scorn those who seek to follow Christ seem to have the wave of public opinion going their way. Godly, biblical values are spurned in public policy and those who embrace them are labeled as bigots. In fact, sometimes it may seem like God Himself has “cast off His people” as a consequence of their own compromise and sin…

Ever feel like that?

I read a Psalm this morning that seemed to put some of those thoughts into words and turned them into a prayer…

“O God… remember your congregation, which you have purchased of old, which you have redeemed… Remember!… How long O God, is the foe to scoff? Is the enemy to revile your name forever? … Yet God my King is from of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth! … Arise, O God, defend your cause!” (taken from Psalm 74. Read the whole Psalm.)

Those were some of the words I uttered to God this morning as my prayer. Why not make them yours as well. I don’t want to be a victim… I want to be an intercessor!
