Let God Arise! #303

1  Let God arise, Let His enemies be scattered; Let those also who hate Him flee before Him. 2  As smoke is driven away, So drive them away; As wax melts before the fire, So let the wicked perish at the presence of God. 3  But let the righteous be glad; Let them rejoice before God; Yes, let them rejoice exceedingly. (Psalm 68:1-3)

When it seems the enemies of goodness have the upper hand, remember that God Himself will arise and destroy every opponent of justice and holiness. Wickedness scatters in fear and flees before His awesome presence. The arrogant unbeliever who defiantly rebels against God and inflicts pain on the upright is truly foolish. Evil will not stand. God Himself defeats all wickedness. Rely on the Lord God today, confidently assured that “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 Jno. 4:4). Let the righteous rejoice and be glad in the God of our salvation!
