Psalm 10

Today’s Passage: Psalm 10
In this Psalm, the Psalmist wants the wicked to perish. He looks around at the world and sees the wicked prospering. And he asks God, “why do you stand so far away? Why do you hide when I am in trouble?”
Have you ever felt this way? Have you ever looked at the people who do the most wicked things yet have the nicest earthly possessions and think “Why would God allow this?” Why wouldn’t God just get rid of the wicked? 
If that thought has ever come to your mind (it has to mine), we need to pause and be reminded of Romans 3:10-12, “None is righteous, no, not one, no one understands, no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.” We need to be reminded that left to ourselves we are full of corruption. That goes for all people. But thanks be to God, who sent His Son to save the wicked. 
So when people wrong us or we see the wicked prospering, instead of desiring vengeance, what if we desired to show them Jesus? 
And here is the truth: wickedness might prosper on earth, but it will perish for eternity. Verse 5 says, “They do not see your punishment awaiting them.” God will punish the wicked, but our job is to point everyone we know to Jesus.
