Psalms 7:9. Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
Getting Tired of This Old World
Sometimes we just get tired of living with the heathen, in this wicked, old world. David asked God if He could let the wickedness and bad, that the heathen do, just end. We should look forward to the kingdom where righteousness will rule and reign. The just will, finally, be established and have the upper hand. Right now the principalities and powers of darkness control this world. As Christians, we must constantly fight against evil.
God Tries the Heart
God tries our hearts and reins each day. He wants to see if we are going to be controlled by this world or controlled by His Spirit. There are a lot of things that God brings our way to see what is in our heart. A lot of times it is not good. With a lot of heat and trials, eventually, the dross gets cleaned off and there is something that can glorify the Lord. As that happens, our tolerance for sin and wickedness grows less and less. We want God to establish our walk with Him.
Letting God Have Control
Have you let God have control of your life? Are you fighting against the principalities and powers of darkness? Do you want to overcome and be victorious? It will only come as you surrender your will to His will. Our heart is desperately wicked. We have trouble really seeing the problems in our own life because of this. Only as God reveals it to us, can we grow and overcome the evil works in our heart. It will be a blessing, when one day, the Lord puts an end to wickedness and sin. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
