We read is Psalm 52, we will find that God is greater than the trials and troubles of this life. We will be reminded that people will hurt us and harm us. God’s coming judgment and His committed and unchanging love will be a comfort and consolation for us during those times. Finally, we will see that the way forward is to grow in trust and faith in God.

“Evil may seem to be flourishing at this moment, but we must build our trust and faith in a God of judgment and a God of grace.”

It reads in Psalm 52:1-9 NIV:
{For the director of music. A maskil of David. When Doeg the Edomite had gone to Saul and told him: “David has gone to the house of Ahimelek.”}
Why do you boast of evil, you mighty hero? Why do you boast all day long, you who are a disgrace in the eyes of God? You who practice deceit, your tongue plots destruction; it is like a sharpened razor. You love evil rather than good, falsehood rather than speaking the truth. You love every harmful word, you deceitful tongue! Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin: He will snatch you up and pluck you from your tent; he will uproot you from the land of the living. The righteous will see and fear; they will laugh at you, saying, “Here now is the man who did not make God his stronghold but trusted in his great wealth and grew strong by destroying others!” But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever. For what you have done I will always praise you in the presence of your faithful people. And I will hope in your name, for your name is good.
