3 # Short Commentary and Lesson from Psalm 10.16-18
God is the only everlasting ruler, and his kind intentions will finally come about in the new creation that he had planned (see Revelation 21 and 22). now, human disobedience is the cause of the widespread suffering we hear about and sometimes even experience ourselves.
Often we can’t see God’s answer to these situations, but that does not mean that he is ignoring human suffering. God works according to his timetable, not ours. The answer will come in time, and our sad and difficult times will be gone forever. In the meantime, God does give us hope based on his past faithfulness to his people.
