Psalm 119.126

Time to pray

"It is time for the Lord to act, for they have broken Your law" [Psalm 119.126 NASB]

David was concerned at the seemingly unstoppable rise of different degrees of wickedness and their catastrophic and demoralizing effect on every fabric of society.

It was as though the armies of darkness had gathered together some of their most powerful weapons against God's people, namely, numerous financial resources and the influential opinion of men in strategic positions.

When we see the demise of law and order - and in its place, injustice and oppression - we, like David, are understandably upset and angry.

What causes us to respond in this manner? ...an urgent passion for God's righteous judgement to be manifested and a genuine concern for those who have been hurt -and yet, there seems to be no remedial army on the horizon.

Why was David in such a rush for God to act? Mr. Untouchable and his extremely wicked partner, Mrs. Unmerciful were alive and well and they were wreaking havoc and despair every time they knocked on someone's door. Their calling card read, "We have the right to do as we please".

The rule and authority of the wicked might seem to be everywhere, and what we actually hate is seen to be widely accepted - and more so as day follows night.

It is worth remembering that God is intimately involved with His people, no matter where they are or what they are experiencing. His understanding of this current situation far surpasses ours. Therefore, even when He is quiet, He is still active and is working out His good and perfect will.

Maybe it is time to take the eyes of our understanding off of what we see, and place our spiritual eyes on two unchangeable principles, God is still on the throne and He is ever alert to the prayers of His people. [David McArdle]
