The Man in Verse Six

 

Psa 5:6  Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

Psa 5:7  But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

There are two types of people being mentioned in these verses.  The first one is a person that crafts and strategically arranges their words in order to harm and deceive.  The second person is one that comes to God’s house in the spirit of fear and mercy to worship God.  These two people are total opposites.
Notice what God says about the bloody and deceitful man in verse 6.  He will destroy him.  Strong words from a loving God.  Sometimes my flesh will try to rise up and do the actions of the first person.  I then have to realize that the things that bark like a dog, act like a dog, scratch like a dog, and lives like a dog……is probably a dog.  If I do not want to be the man in verse 6, then I should not act like him.  Even when I feel wronged or deceived, remember that God “has your back”.

Rom 12:19  Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Pro 15:3  The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

Notice what the man in verse 7 does, he goes where God is and worships Him.  When you feel like you have been wronged, remember that God will take care of you.  I remember the first time I felt that Joy was being mistreated.  It was in a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant.  I totally reacted instead of being calm.  I was yelling and screaming and almost broke “some things”.  I will spare you the details and spare me the embarrassment by saying that when I felt my daughter’s pain and anguish; I was about to come “unglued” on some “folk”.  God, our Heavenly Father, is the same way.  When we come to Him instead of taking matters into our own hands, He will take care of us.

Bro. CW’s challenge for today:

Don’t re-act to evil and bloody men, go to where God is and let Him take care of you!
