This morning I wept as I read Psalm 9 and 10. These psalms speak of God never forsaking those who seek Him; of how God Himself avenges the blood of the afflicted, striking their enemies with terror. It speaks of the pride of the wicked, who think what they do in secret will never be discovered or punished, yet God sees. It speaks of the wicked overpowering and crushing their innocent victims, yet the victim commits Himself to God and God hears, He listens, He comes, He encourages, He defends, He avenges, "in order that man, who is of the earth, may terrify no more."
I wept for the innocent victims of child abuse, for the child who is molested by a trusted adult. I pray that victims would commit themselves to God, and that the wicked would be found out and judged.
