Break The Power Of The Wicked

Br

Great God Jehovah

Glorious and powerful

Mighty in battle

Hear the cry of your children

And break the power of the wicked

 

Deliver the oppressed

Afflicted

Sick

Poor

And weak

 

Mighty deliverer

Our hope is in you

We look up to you

And ask for help

 

Let your mercy

Come upon us

By the blood of Jesus

And Holy Ghost fire

Amen

 

Psalm 10

Why, Lord, do you stand far off?
    Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?

In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak,
    who are caught in the schemes he devises.
He boasts about the cravings of his heart;
    he blesses the greedy and reviles the Lord.
In his pride the wicked man does not seek him;
    in all his thoughts there is no room for God.
His ways are always prosperous;
    your laws are rejected by him;
    he sneers at all his enemies.
He says to himself, “Nothing will ever shake me.”
    He swears, “No one will ever do me harm.”

His mouth is full of lies and threats;
    trouble and evil are under his tongue.
He lies in wait near the villages;
    from ambush he murders the innocent.
His eyes watch in secret for his victims;
    like a lion in cover he lies in wait.
He lies in wait to catch the helpless;
    he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.
10 His victims are crushed, they collapse;
    they fall under his strength.
11 He says to himself, “God will never notice;
    he covers his face and never sees.”

12 Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God.
    Do not forget the helpless.
13 Why does the wicked man revile God?
    Why does he say to himself,
    “He won’t call me to account”?
14 But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;
    you consider their grief and take it in hand.
The victims commit themselves to you;
    you are the helper of the fatherless.
15 Break the arm of the wicked man;
    call the evildoer to account for his wickedness
    that would not otherwise be found out.

16 The Lord is King for ever and ever;
    the nations will perish from his land.
17 You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted;
    you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,
18 defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
    so that mere earthly mortals
    will never again strike terror.

    Laura, this kind of goes right along with my blog post, “Where are You God?”. Often times we feel like God has left, when in reality He’s still there, we just are not in a position to sense His presence. Even in the midst of struggles when it seems like the whole world is against us, He is still close by holding us in His arms. Great post!

      Thank you so much for the lovely and insightful words. So true, sometimes it seems as if God is not present because we can’t see Him but He is always there.

      By faith we cling to Him and believe He is with us even when we pass through the toughest storms and trials. He will be with us till the end of time and He will never leave us or forsake us. ❤️❤️❤️
