I LIFT MY EYES – Psalm 9:19-20

Psalm 9:19-20 : Arise, Lord, do not let mortals triumph;     let the nations be judged in your presence. 20 Strike them with terror, Lord;     let the nations know they are only mortal.

Response : 

Prayers are the believer’s weapons of war. When the battle is too hard for us, we call in our great ally, who, as it were, lies in ambush until faith gives the signal by crying out, Arise, O Lord. Although our cause be all but lost, it shall be soon won again, if the Almighty  stirs Himself. He will not suffer man to prevail over God, but with swift judgments will confound their gloryings. In the very sight of God the wicked will be punished, and He who is now all tenderness will have no bowels of compassion for them, since they had no tears of repentance while their day of grace endured.

Put them in fear, O Lord We should otherwise think ourselves gods. We are so inclined to sin that we need strong restraints, and so swelled with a natural pride against God, that we need thorns in the flesh to let out the corrupt matter. The constant hanging the rod over us makes us lick the dust, and acknowledge ourselves to be altogether at the Lord’s mercy. Though God has pardoned us, He will make us wear the halter about our necks to humble us.  it is a prayer that they may know themselves to be but miserable, frail, and dying men.

Lord, rule among us we pray. Amen.

  1. >> “let the nations know they are only mortal” . . . and let all that comes against us know that YOU are God; that YOU are immortal; that YOU are omnipotent. We rest in you in complete confidence, knowing that YOU are in control and will undertake for us in any and all circumstances.

    What an amazing God!
