S (Scripture): Psalm 10
The wicked think to themselves:
God has forgotten.
God has hidden his face.
God never sees anything!
O (Observation): The psalmist abhors the wicked, but sees through their naïveté. God knows the deeds of the good and of the wicked.
A (Application): Simply put, when the wicked enact evil, I lean on these kinds of verses to remind me that God is up to meting out justice in this world on behalf of all those struck down by the oppressors of this world.
This is known as a theology of the cross. God is always on the side of the oppressed and downtrodden. God is on the cross. And the victory is somehow still God’s.
P (Prayer): God, save us. You will. Amen.
