Devotion 2-23-24, Psalm 76:10- "For the wrath of man shall praise You; With a remnant of wrath You will gird Yourself." We limit our perception of God to what we can understand. In doing so, we attempt to put God into a box of our making. This is an arrogant misunderstanding of God. The created, us, may not remotely limit the Creator, God. He, Himself, speaks to our limitations and His expensive power. Through Moses, God told Pharaoh in Egypt, "...for this reason, I have allowed you to remain, in order to show you My power, and in order to proclaim My name through all the earth."(Exodus 9:16) The psalmist grasps an amazing truth - even the wrath of men is nothing to God. God will use or restrain the wrath of men as He chooses and as it benefits those who are humble followers of Christ. We see this again in Romans 9:15-16, where Paul writes of God, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” So then it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but on God who has mercy." God knows the hearts of all mankind. He knows those who have stubbornly resisted Him, and those who have submitted to His authority. God will do what He can and will do. He will postpone His own wrath against sin so many may be saved. He will choose the appropriate time to pass judgment. In the meantime, we must choose His grace and mercy. We must choose to stay close to Him in His bond of love. He has the ability to use even men's wrath for His praise. He will restrain the rest. He will turn men's wrath upon themselves. He will be praised! All this was done to, " ... make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory, even us, whom He also called,...."(Romans 9:23-24a)
