Thoughts On Psalms: A Snare for the Wicked

Psalm 5:9,10

Not a word from their mouth can be trusted; their heart is filled with destruction. Their throat is an open grave; with their tongue they speak deceit.

Declare them guilty, O God! 

Let their intrigues be their downfall. Banish them for their many sins, for they have rebelled against you. 

The wicked cannot be trusted. Every word that passes their lips is bent on one thing; destruction. Their inner being is devoted not to things of God, but to things of the world. 

The nastiness of their fleshly living is likened to the foul odor of a corrupting body in a grave. Moreover, the wicked will say things that are pleasing to our ears leading us toward sin and away from the Spirit. They are tools of the evil one leading us to be devoured.  Resist! 

“Declare them guilty, O God!,” David screams. 

At one time in our lives we were as wretched as David’s enemies. We are guilty, O God!  But, for His grace, for His mercy we have been justified simply because we believe. We love God not because we loved Him first. He loved us first and He provides for us a way to live; every day in Him. 

The unrepentant will eventually stand for judgment.  Their lies and deceits will catch them like hidden snares. Their worldly truth will be uncovered by the Light. They will be judged by our Father. 

We know folks who are rebelling against God. Let us honor our Father and reach out with gentleness and loving-kindness to those who have yet been convinced of His Gospel.   

Be blessed for His sake.
