Psalm 10 petitions God’s help against wicked people. It is a prayer for the overthrow of the wicked and for deliverance from enemies. This psalm assures us the Lord is a doer of justice.

O Lord, you hear the desire of the afflicted; you will strengthen their heart;
you will incline your ear to do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed,
so that man who is of the earth may strike terror no more.
Psalm 10:17-18 ESV

In their arrogance, those who are wicked do not make room for God. They hold a haughty attitude toward others as well, thinking they will always prosper and never have troubles. The laws of God seem far from their reasoning. Curses, lies, and threats reveal their blatant immorality. They deny God is in control. Self-deification makes them forget their humanity, as they continue to spurn God.

Yet, the Lord hears the desire of the humble. The oppressed do not go unheard, God will strengthen their heart. He will call the wicked to account. The Eternal King of kings and Lord of lords opposes the powerful and gives aid to the poor, helpless, and oppressed.

God, I thank You for being our strength. Give us wise leaders who have compassion for people who need protection and help from the wicked. Amen.
