(Day 44) “Why does the wicked renounce God
and say in his heart, “You will not call to account?” But you do see, for you note mischief and vexation, that you may take it into your hands; to you the helpless commits himself;you have been the helper of the fatherless. Break the arm of the wicked and evildoer; call his wickedness to account till you find none.
Sometimes I find myself asking the same thing David does here, “Why God, do you allow the utter disrespect of some of those around me, toward You? Why are they able to get away with it?” I have to remind myself that they don’t away with it. God is keeping score as long as they have not accepted His Son. They will account for their godlessness at the appropriate time. However, can some of the ways I behave or choices I make be just as hurtful to loving God who graciously saved my life? The distance between my choice on a different direction than God’s will and the man in the passage above, is not that far…at all.
