....A man shall say; verily there is a reward for the righteous; verily He is a God that judgeth in the earth.
The setting for today's topical discussion is King David writing about the wicked conditions during his day and reminding the righteous that God has a reward for them laid up in heaven not to worry but hold fast to their faith.
Our scripture text makes a profound statement; when we are burden down with the troubles of this world and it appears as though Satan and sin is winning the war between good and evil fear not because our hope is in Jesus Christ who defeated Satan at the cross.
God may be longsuffering but He will punish sin in His own time. What the righteous must do is hold onto God's unchanging hand while staying focus on the prize, which is our crown of righteous and spending eternity with Him. The righteous must also hold onto the fact that God keeps His promises; He promised to punish sin and He does. He promised a Savior, Jesus came and took the sins of this world on His shoulders. The righteous have accepted Jesus' atoning work while the wicked have not and continue to reject Jesus.
Have heart believers, our payday is coming; God will restore His perfect peace and will banish sin from the earth. The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance of the Lord (v.10).
