Bothered by the Powerful, Rich, and Arrogant? …

Does it ever bother you… the arrogance of the powerful, evil, God-rejecting person?

Well, here’s good news… The Bible predicts and promises ultimate vindication!  Psalm 52 in your Bible declares it… I read it just this morning during “coffee with the Lord” and it helped put things in perspective for me…

Listen, reject hatred!  Don’t try to “get even!”  Leave it to the Lord – He’ll take care of it!  What that does is free you up to be “redemptive!”  Perhaps the person that bothers you in this regard will turn to the Lord before judgment comes and be transformed by God’s grace!! (Check out Romans 12:14-21)

Give Psalm 52 a read and let it do it’s work within you on this topic (here’s an excerpt)…  

WHY DO YOU BOAST IN EVIL, O MIGHTY MAN?

THE GOODNESS OF GOD ENDURES CONTINUALLY!

Your tongue devises destruction,

Like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.

You love evil more than good,

Lying rather than speaking righteousness.

You love all devouring words,

You deceitful tongue.

“God shall likewise destroy you forever;

He shall take you away, and pluck you out of your dwelling place,

And uproot you from the land of the living.

“The righteous also shall see and fear,

And shall laugh, saying,

‘Here is the man who did not make God his strength,

But trusted in the abundance of his riches,

And strengthened himself in his wickedness.’

“But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God;

I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever.

I will praise You forever,

Because You have done it;

I will wait on Your name, for it is good.”

(From Psalm 52 NKJV)
