I remember sitting in my car, hearing the news of 9/11 and thinking, “The world will never be the same again.”
And in many ways it isn’t. It seems to be a much scarier place. I read the news and see foul atrocities taking place in every corner of the globe – just as the writer of this Psalm saw them so many centuries ago.
Our hope can never be in living in a comfortable spot in a prosperous land, where we don’t get touched by bad things. Ultimately, our security has to be in a God who is totally limitless in power, place, time and reach. Justice will come to all – no one will ‘get away with it’ forever.
As we listen to the news today, let us call on our infinite God to bring justice into every situation, and pray that every victim might know that our God is the one who is there when earthly systems fail – the one who sees and hears and feels and cares and acts. The One who is our ultimate security.
