DCLM Daily Manna 11 November 2021 Devotional By Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — Justice Of God


TOPIC: Justice Of God

TEXT: Psalm 76:1-12

1 In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel.

2 In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.

3 There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.

4 Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.

5 The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands.

6 At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.

7 Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?

8 Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,

9 When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.

10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.

11 Vow, and pay unto the Lord your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.

12 He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.

KEY VERSE: “Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still.” – (Psalm 76:8)


When a military dictator died in office some years ago, some people reportedly danced and jubilated on the streets. Many of them had gloomily assumed that he would be around for another decade making their lives a complete misery. But, suddenly, the dictator was gone. Yet, it is unseemly and uncomely to rejoice when any man dies; but who can question the justice of God?

The psalmist in our text spoke about the reach and spread of God’s power and authority. He is present everywhere. He is the One who can rise and save all the meek of the earth. The “wrath of man” shall ultimately praise Him because He can cause the actions of men to fulfil His will eventually. He can cut off the spirit of princes who, having amassed great riches and power, use it to oppress the poor and powerless.

Surprisingly, man has become the greatest instrument he uses in oppressing his fellow man. Dictators free themselves and place all others in bondage. For years, tyrannical kings and emperors have presented a larger than life image of themselves and used their vast powers to crush anyone who tries to challenge their authority.

We should expect God’s justice system to prevail eventually. Believers should not take laws into their hands because vengeance belongs unto Him.

Justice delayed is not justice denied.

Ezekiel 1-2
