When I’m walking, I don’t have the ability to see every single thing that’s around me. I can put one foot in front of the other and make it down a path. I can take a hike in the woods. But I do not have the ability to see everything.
It’s the same way as I view my life. I don’t have the ability to take all of the pieces from the past and the present and interweave them with the future and make it all come out okay.
The psalmist is praying these verses, asking God to make things right. He is asking that the enemies be stopped and turned back. These are big prayers, prayed to a big God.
“May all who hate Zion be turned back in shame. May they be like grass on the roof, which withers before it can grow; a reaper cannot fill his hands with it, nor one who gathers fill his arms. May those who pass by not say to them, ‘The blessing of the Lord be on you; we bless you in the name of the Lord.’”
Thank You, God, that You are such a big God. You are bigger than any problem, enemy, offense. You are the Mountain One and You put all of it together to work for me.
