1 O Lord, the God of vengeance,
O God of vengeance, let your glorious justice shine forth!
2 Arise, O Judge of the earth.
Give the proud what they deserve.
3 How long, O Lord?
How long will the wicked be allowed to gloat?
4 How long will they speak with arrogance?
How long will these evil people boast?
5 They crush your people, Lord,
hurting those you claim as your own.
6 They kill widows and foreigners
and murder orphans.
7 “The Lord isn’t looking,” they say,
“and besides, the God of Israel[a] doesn’t care.”
8 Think again, you fools!
When will you finally catch on?
9 Is he deaf—the one who made your ears?
Is he blind—the one who formed your eyes?
10 He punishes the nations—won’t he also punish you?
He knows everything—doesn’t he also know what you are doing?
11 The Lord knows people’s thoughts;
he knows they are worthless!
12 Joyful are those you discipline, Lord,
those you teach with your instructions.
13 You give them relief from troubled times
until a pit is dug to capture the wicked.
14 The Lord will not reject his people;
he will not abandon his special possession.
15 Judgment will again be founded on justice,
and those with virtuous hearts will pursue it.
16 Who will protect me from the wicked?
Who will stand up for me against evildoers?
17 Unless the Lord had helped me,
I would soon have settled in the silence of the grave.
18 I cried out, “I am slipping!”
but your unfailing love, O Lord, supported me.
19 When doubts filled my mind,
your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.
20 Can unjust leaders claim that God is on their side—
leaders whose decrees permit injustice?
21 They gang up against the righteous
and condemn the innocent to death.
22 But the Lord is my fortress;
my God is the mighty rock where I hide.
23 God will turn the sins of evil people back on them.
He will destroy them for their sins.
The Lord our God will destroy them. Psalm 94
The Lord is our shepherd and He is our redeemer. The battle belongs unto Him and vengeance alone lies in His hand. Our desire when we observe an injustice or have an injustice done to us we desire to take it into our own hands. But this is not what the Lord is calling us to do. He is calling us to place it in His hands and wait on Him to move in the situation.
It is okay as Christians to pray for the justice of the Lord to be poured out. We are God’s sons and daughters, and yes the Lord is full of grace and mercy. But He is also our protector and more than anything He is our Father. He will come against those who stand against us and all we need to do is bringing it before Him in prayer.
Today if your heart is broken over injustice or wickedness simply cry out to the Lord. Ask him to move in that area and pour out His justice in that area. The armies of Heaven respond to the prayers of God’s people. The ministering and warring angels move mightily when we go before the Lord in prayer. The Lord desires to accomplish much in the earth and He is simply waiting for His people to be moved to the place of prayer. We are co-laborers with Christ and before the Lord moves on the earth He always move on the heart of someone who is faithful in prayer. As the Lord moves on your heart this day simply pour out your heart before Him in the place of prayer.
