Every Sunday A Psalms:How Long

Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris

Psalms 82:1-8 KJV
(1) A Psalm of Asaph. God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.
(2) How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
(3) Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
(4) Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
(5) They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
(6) I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
(7) But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
(8) Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.

When I read any Psalms similar to the one above my first thought is how long Lord, before the world sings in one accord your Praises, and your children live in victory. The stars of this world and the super leaders of our world are like gods walking to and fro through the land among the people. Everyone needing a leader to follow and yet the only leader we need is the one True God and His Son to follow. Are we blind to the children gazing at the stars and desiring their popularity. Are we blind to the fact some of these people with power only have it because of their greed. The need for greed to rule the earth is seen in the star power of rebellion and evil ways. The idea of Hollywood being a place of hopes and dreams is short lived by many that adventure to go there. Now with video social media and social media everyone is a star. We all become like Hollywood dying to see each otherís latest videos, and images of life outside the computer land. Yet how many fail to go beyond the screen to explore their world beyond the computer. Have we become trapped behind a machine? The other day as I worked on my computer and did updates to my web pages I found myself asking can I please get off the computer and do something else today. The answer came not until I finish. Hearing my motherís words when working on a project growing up, or doing an unwanted task or chore. My mother always one to encourage a task to completion, yet never pressured when it came to things of my own choice, like craft projects and such. Any job worth doing must be done right. And then I began to search through web pages and seeing to many errors, but all felt inspired to write. The attitude I can do better today, tomorrow and next year. And why did I not do that.

The project hands across America spanned our nation. If the saints all stood in like manner and praise the Lord I wonder what would happen. The believer longs for heaven as they watch for ways to fatten their own wallets and become more like the stars they see. A star might desire to be among the children of the world instead of the limelight for a second. Back to the normalcy of human life without being tossed to and fro from one end of the spectrum to the other. Everyone is beating to a different drummer under the name of freedom. Yet few understand true freedom comes with staying in tune with God. Marching in step in faith toward the pearly gates of deliverance for all that believe.

For those walking in the darkness of our world they understand not that faith brings about peace with our neighbors. It is a life style choice. It is a life style of saying I doing it Godís way because His way is superior. It is saying God loved me enough to send his salvation plan through his Son to die for me. He stood up and received us as his own even when his Son was crucified because Jesus said Father forgive them, they know not what they do. Evil men rage and never realizing the evil they do. They are tone deaf to their own misery and the plight of others. There own soul shadowed only by darkness of greed and selfish desire, understanding not the ways of God because they have no desire to learn about God. With or without a book one will learn about God if they desire and do not desire. God desire us to seek Him. To read scripture and so forth, but without scripture God still spoke to manís heart by his Spirit. Godís word still going forth to man ears.

Godís grace is sufficient for our needs. Godís grace is beyond our own hope and dreams of a better tomorrow. God allows the heathens of the world to have their say to only destroy them with His word and power; God wants to destroy them with his love for them. Destroy them to the point they kneel before His throne in true humbleness. How long does Godís people have to wait. Godís timing is not ours. Jesus is coming back soon, but how soon? Our time is short we go back to the dirt of the land, and yet our Spirit soars toward heaven for all that believe in Jesus.

Dear Heavenly Father give us that precious hope of tomorrow knowing your deliverance is coming. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
