O LORD, you hear the desire of the afflicted. Psalm 10:17

Does God feel far away? Do you wonder if He has forgotten you? If so, this psalm is for you. God is calling you to stand in faith, and you can do that because Jesus will stand with you.

Not only did Jesus endure wickedness, He triumphed over it. Peter said, “You crucified and killed [him] by the hands of lawless men” (Acts 2:23), but God raised Him up, and He is the King forever and ever (Psa. 10:16).

Jesus hears the prayer of the afflicted, and that means He can “strengthen your heart” (10:17). And that strength will come to you, as you come like David did and pray.

When Jesus comes in power and glory, He will “break the arm of the wicked” and “call his wickedness to account till you find none” (10:15). Jesus will have the last word over wickedness. That’s the great truth that is demonstrated in the resurrection. Jesus has risen. That means He sees. He is on the throne. But for now, His hand is raised, not in judgment, but in mercy.

This is good news for every person, no matter how wicked you have been. Wickedness is going down, but you don’t need to go down with your wickedness. God offers mercy and grace today to you through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Where do the wicked seem to be winning? Will you stand in faith today?
