How Long?

Have you ever wondered why God doesn't show up? Why He doesn't punish the wicked or resuce the hurting or heal the broken? So did the Psalmist...
Psalm 74:9 We do not see our signs; there is no longer any prophet,and there is none among us who knows how long. 10 How long, O God, is the foe to scoff? Is the enemy to revile your name forever?

While he did not know when God would bring justice, he did remind himself the things he knew about "my King"...
12 Yet God my King is from of old,working salvation in the midst of the earth. 13 You divided the sea by your might; you broke the heads of the sea monsters on the waters. 14 You crushed the heads of Leviathan; you gave him as food for the creatures of the wilderness. 15 You split open springs and brooks; you dried up ever-flowing streams. 16 Yours is the day, yours also the night; you have established the heavenly lights and the sun. 17 You have fixed all the boundaries of the earth;you have made summer and winter.

Lord, forgive me for my lack of faith. Help me to trust Your timing.
