Psalm 75

I was praying The Bible today and dwelt on this Psalm. It was encouraging to be reminded that not only is God in control, but he actually has appointed a specific time to deal with all the Hell based evil we see in this world. Its so easy to become discouraged when were not walking in the knowledge that Justice rolls on like a mighty river that can not be stopped. So picture the most evil thing you have seen or heard about and praise God that in his fullness that evil is made right.

Psalm 75 1We thank you, God, we thank you--your Name is our favorite word;
your mighty works are all we talk about.

2You say, "I'm calling this meeting to order,
I'm ready to set things right.
3When the earth goes topsy-turvy
And nobody knows which end is up,
I nail it all down,
I put everything in place again.
4I say to the smart alecks, "That's enough,'
to the bullies, "Not so fast.'"

5Don't raise your fist against High God.
Don't raise your voice against Rock of Ages.
6He's the One from east to west;
from desert to mountains, he's the One.

7God rules: he brings this one down to his knees,
pulls that one up on her feet.
8GOD has a cup in his hand,
a bowl of wine, full to the brim.
He draws from it and pours;
it's drained to the dregs.
Earth's wicked ones drink it all,
drink it down to the last bitter drop!

9And I'm telling the story of God Eternal,
singing the praises of Jacob's God.
10The fists of the wicked
are bloody stumps,
The arms of the righteous
are lofty green branches.
An Asaph psalm
