Righteous Wrath

Hello, God has given me something in Psalms 7:10-11 which says,

“My shield[a](A) is God Most High,
    who saves the upright in heart.(B)
11 God is a righteous judge,(C)
    a God who displays his wrath(D) every day.”

David asked God to save him, because if he didn’t then his enemies would tear him apart like lion. He told God that if he was guilty, or he had repaid his ally with evil, or without cause robbed his foe, or pretty much done anything wrong, then let his enemy pursue an overtake him. David was willing to be overtaken by his enemy if he did wrong. He would take the punishment. In the verses above he says that God is his shield and most high. He said that God was a righteous judge who displayed his wrath every day.

Christians have been saved from God’s wrath. We have been saved from sin. We are free! But, unbelievers are no longer stuck in sin. They need help. So, if you are an unbeliever, then why won’t you come to Jesus? He will save you. Christ is mighty to save, and He will save you. If you want to experience filling, inexpressible joy (1 Peter 1:8-9), then come to Jesus, and be saved!

Christians should not only help unbelievers to be saved from sin, we also need to praise the Lord. We need to love Him. We need to praise Jesus, for He has given His life as an atoning sacrifice (1 John 2:2 & 1 John 4:10), and saved us.  He gave His life for us and rose again, and He saved us! God has loved us so much (John 3:16) that He gave His son for us. Let’s love Him with all of our hearts! Let’s praise the Lord with all of our strength. Thank You, Jesus!

Application: How does Psalms 7:10-11 apply to us? David said that God took out His wrath every day, and that He was a righteous judge. Well, since what David said is true, how come we aren’t dead? Think about it. We were sinning wretches doomed in our sin. If God was righteous, then He would put the death those with sin, right? So, He should take His wrath out every day on us, right? Wrong. Jesus came down to earth, and He took on our sin, and He saved us from death in hell. So, God put to death the one with all our sin, Jesus. Now we are saved, like verse 10 said, “My shield[a](A) is God Most High,
    who saves the upright in heart.(B)

God made us upright in heart, and saved us.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for loving me so much. Thank You for giving Your son for me. Thank You for taking Your wrath out on Jesus, instead of me,  and saving me from sin. Thank You for making me Your daughter. Thank You for blessing me so much. Please help me to love You more. Please help me to rejoice in You. Please help me to grow in You and more like You. Please help me to walk and talk with You more. Please help me not to be proud. Please help me to be more thankful. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Filling and inexpressible joy, 1 Peter 1:8-9,

“He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins,(A) and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.(B)” (1 John 2:2)

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us(A) and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.(B)” (1 John 4:10)

Love, John 3:16,
