Psalms 94Acts 10:23-48

Thought from Today’s Old Testament Passage:

[Psalm 94] The position of this song immediately after the song which sets forth the fact of the enthronement of Jehovah is remarkable. It creates a contrast while it suggests a continuity of ideas. The contrast is between the celebration in the previous psalm of the victory of Jehovah over all opposition and the appeal to Him out of circumstances in which His enemies seem to triumph in the second psalm. The continuity of ideas is, however, equally apparent. To whom should His own turn in times of such distress save to the One who sits above the force and fury of the flood?

The psalm has three main movements. First, an appeal to Jehovah the Mighty in the presence of the triumph of the wicked (verses 1-7). This is followed by an address to those who are doubting because of the apparent inactivity of God. They are reminded that God hears, sees, and must act (verses 8-11). Finally, the song again becomes a prayer in which faith makes its great affirmations. The period of waiting is one of blessed chastening. Jehovah cannot ultimately cast off His people. Experience testifies to this. The wrong committed by those apparently victorious enemies makes it impossible to believe that they can have fellowship with God. Therefore, the final words tell of the psalmist’s confidence.
