Some people do evil things. We can get caught in their path at times and their actions influence what we are going through. How do we deal with people like that? The answer according to Psalm 52 is that we don’t.
You love evil more than good, Falsehood more than speaking what is right. Selah. But God will break you down forever; He will snatch you up and tear you away from your tent, And uproot you from the land of the living. Selah.
Psalms 52:3, 5 NASB
God deals with people like that. He will address the evil that is in their hearts and shown through their actions. We can rest and allow God to do this. Now, it can be hard to wait on his timing to address these circumstances, but in my experience, God does a much better job addressing it that I do. Are we allowing God to defend us?
