He sees

“But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand.  The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.”  Psalm 10:14.

What comfort!

God sees all that is going on.

I remember as a kid, with four siblings, constantly hearing, “Did you see what he did?”  Often the question referenced me and was asked to my parents.  They might not have seen what was done but they had their suspicions about who the culprit was!

God doesn’t miss anything.  In the first thirteen verses of Psalm 10, the psalmist sounds like my sisters.  Look at the bad things that are being done.  Can’t you see it?

But then in verse 14, the psalmist comes to his God sense: “But you, God, see the trouble…”

God now only sees the trouble but has promised to punish it.  I’m not in the punishment business.  That’s God’s job and He is the righteous Judge.

In an evil world, what should the Godly do?  I need to be sinless.  I need to be His clean instrument.  I need to be prepared to move in and help.  I need to be constantly interceding for this world’s victims.  I need to be certain that I am not afflicting the helpless by my actions or inactions.  Bottom line?  I must be filled with the Holy Spirit every second.

Conclusion: Give me eyes to see as He sees and a willingness to intervene when He wants me to.
