TOPIC: GOD IS OUR RELIEF IN THIS WORLD OF INJUSTICE

TEXT: PSALM 9:1-20


The world is going through the painful experience of injustice due to bad leadership and evil individuals. This can be clearly seen in most countries of the world, especially in Africa. Some of these injustices are carried out by some superpower countries against weaker countries. In other cases, it is powerful individuals against the weak or underprivileged. However, God is the only hope for all men, especially the underprivileged.


This Psalm presents the nature of the role God plays in this world of injustice. David praised Him for His justice towards him and His people and all the needy. In Psalm 9, David acknowledges God's justice, which is displayed against unjust and wicked people. Such evil people are always at war with the righteous or godly ones.


Our God is a just God and no one who commits injustice will go free. Every wicked nation or unjust individuals must give their accounts one day. Our just God deals with all and will bring all to judgment.


QUESTION

Do you praise God for His justice, even in a difficult situation?


PRAYER

Lord, thank You for restoring our hope in Your justice in this world of prevailing injustice.
