Judging Through Prayer

Psalm 58 is a dark word of lament at the corruption of wicked rulers. David teaches the people of God to use their gathered time to call upon Him to frustrate the plans of these devouring lions, and punish them for their abuse of God’s people. If our idea of worship is confined to praise, then it will be very difficult for us to worship to this psalm, but if instead we see ourselves as those who will judge the world, then this psalm becomes discipleship for our lips as we pursue this task. This morning, let Psalm 58 teach you to rejoice in holy justice that enacts vengeance and restores righteousness on the earth.
