Scripture Reading: Psalm 10

Psalm 10:15 – “Break the arm of the wicked and the evil man; Seek out his wickedness until You find none.”

The psalmist presents us with an example of how times of prayer to God should be. After pouring out his concerns about the wicked and how God had chosen to handle them, the psalmist affirms his Faith in Him. He then begins to believe that God will act concerning his situation; The psalmist is now emboldened to place his requests before God.

The Bible tells us: “We are not fighting against humans. We are fighting against forces and authorities and against rulers of darkness and powers in the spiritual world.” (Ephesians 6: 12 CEV).  However, most believers waste their energy fighting natural conditions instead of supernatural causes.

Our battle is not a battle of flesh and blood, but it is of the spirit. Most believers are so earthly (or carnally) minded that they never even realize the actual source of the enemy’s attacks. They blame circumstances, and people. We need to wake up to the warfare that is going on in the heavenly realm!

Uncertainty befalls us all in prayer because we are limited in our scope of vision and understanding. Though we may begin with uncertainty, we must end with confidence in the Lord, with an assurance that He can give us what we ask of Him in Faith according to His Will.

The psalmist makes two bold requests before the Lord.

BREAK THE ARM OF THE WICKED: The ‘arm of the wicked’ refers to the ‘might of the wicked’. This prayer asks the Lord to disarm those who do evil and render them powerless. When the strength of the wicked is taken away, they are disabled from doing the harm they intended.

We can ask the Lord to disarm evil weapons that are set against us and He will. We can ask Him to take away the advantage the wicked have over us and He will.

SEEK OUT his WICKEDNESS. This is a prayer for God to uproot all the evil works done by the wicked. He calls on the Lord to carefully investigate the wicked person’s life and works until every evil deed is exposed and judged.

When we are faced with overwhelming circumstances, God knows their stronghold. When powerful people rise against us, God sees their schemes and He’s able to pull them out and make a public show of them. When God answers this prayer, He delivers us from evil.

All we need to care about is to pray for God’s intervention when the wicked come against us. We need not wonder about what God will do to the wicked as He delivers us from all their works. We can rest in Him to deliver us.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, you are the defender of those who trust in you. Disarm the wicked and uproot their evil works.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
