“Let those who love the Lord hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked” Ps 97:10
It is the promise of God that He will protect His children and deliver them from the hand of wicked. Let us examine the word, if this promise is true for all those who claim to be children of God? “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith” 2 Cor 13:5
Love: Let those who love the Lord.. Ps 97:10. True son or daughter will surely love His / Her father with all their heart. Same way, if we a true children of heavenly Father, then we will love our Lord with all our heart. Do we love the Lord?
Hate Evil:Let those who love the Lord hate evil…Ps 97:10. True love results in actions, it is not just lip service. True love will lead us to hate evil. We will grow from the stage struggling to overcome sin to the stage where we hate sin. Do we hate sin?
Protection: …for he guards the lives of his faithful ones … Ps 97:10. Every faithful child of God, will be protected by Almighty. Why do we worry? Let us stop worrying of situation and let us examine and see if we are His faithful ones ?
Deliverance: …delivers them from the hand of the wicked Ps 97:10. Never fear trails and tribulations for Lord has promised us to deliver us from the hand of wicked. Let us submit all our burdens and fears at the feet of the Lord.
