Psalm 83 is a psalm of vengeance rightly pursued. Asaph remembers that vengeance belongs to God, and so he urges God to be God, and to act for the sake of His name. He remembers the ways God has defended His name before, and calls on Him to do so again. But at the end of the psalm, the gracious motive of vengeance is revealed: God uses destruction and shame to crush the pride of the wicked, so that they will seek His name and know that the Lord is most high over all the earth. As you come to worship today, pray that God would enact His holy vengeance that leads to salvation.
