The Rod of the Wicked…

Relax, we are still safe in the protection of God!

Ps 125:3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.

The word ‘rod’ used here means a rod, or a club. How we see the violence of wicked men around the world.

Where I used to live, rarely did a day go by without some sort of shooting or killing. On my street, a mother was simply in her front yard, when some drug crazed nut, rode by on his bicycle, and pulled out a pistol and shot her in the right kneecap. She claims she has never even seen the guy before! Nuts!

Crazy, wicked people, full of violence, dangerous. Why?

Well there are two reason’s really, 2Ti 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Fierce people, violent, despisers of that which is good are a sign of the age in which we live. People without God in the earth. They are angry in their hearts, because their hearts convict them of their wickedness and self will, their godlessness.

Pr 19:3 ¶ The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD.

The word used ‘fretteth’ here means ‘to rage’. People doing their own thing, are mad at God, and if you come along, actually serving Jesus and committed to living an obedient, disciplined life, they are going to be mad at you too.

Persecution is not the manifestation of another persons hate for you. It’s a manifestation of Satan’s fear of you.
(Kenneth Copeland)

Relax, read the rest of the verse:

Ps 125:3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.

I picture this verse this way: Though angry, violent people, armed with a club, a gun, a knife, want to do violence to me as a servant of the Lord, they cannot, for God Almighty protects me!

Let’s pray:
‘Father, I come before you now, thanking you for your protection, even when I sleep. Ps 34:7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. I believe that as I go about my life, seeking to please you, your angels encamp round about me and my family, church, and possessions, and delivers us, for I ask in your precious name Lord Jesus, Amen!’
