The Lord Knows and Sees All Things – Psalm 94:9-11

He who planted the ear, does He not hear?
Or He who formed the eye, does He not see?

The Lord Knows and Sees All Things – Psalm 94:9-11

He who planted the ear, does He not hear?
Or He who formed the eye, does He not see?
He who disciplines the nations, will He not rebuke,
He who teaches mankind knowledge?
The Lord knows human thoughts,
That they are mere breath.

Understanding Psalm 94

The predominant theme of Psalm 94 involves the psalmist asking the Lord for help against an enemy. He wants the Lord to take revenge against evil acts … which serves as a reminder that it is indeed the Lord to whom all vengeance belongs.

In this psalm, King David grows frustrated with the wicked continuing to carry out evil schemes with seemingly no consequences. And there are no doubt many today who wonder the same thing — Will there will ever be retribution for all the evil acts perpetuated against the world’s innocent? Much like in the psalmist’s day, we too are living in perilous times wherein evil appears to run rampant and holiness an ancient and retired exhortation. But God tells us in His Word that not only is His Word everlasting, His reign runs supreme. He sees, engages with, and will one day make retribution for all things. In other words, just vengeance will be His!

To this end, one third of the Psalms encourage the faithful to commit to the Lord and to trust in Him … no matter what happens. Psalm 37:5 exhorts for example, “Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him and He will do it…”. So what are we to do while we “wait on the Lord”? We are to draw near Him with our full mind, heart and soul, repenting of our sins, fully surrendering our lives to Him, and trusting Him with the outcome.

Our God is the same yesterday, today and always. Regardless of how the world appears on the daily, we are to persevere in the good fight of faith, striving toward a state of holiness and trusting God (and His Word) with all things. With faith, all things are possible!

Prayer

Healing Prayer of Surrender

Dear Lord Jesus,
it is my will to surrender to You
everything that I am and
everything that I’m striving to be.
I open the deepest recesses
of my heart and
invite Your Holy Spirit to dwell inside of me.
I offer You my life, heart, mind, body, soul,
spirit, all my hopes, plans and dreams.
I surrender to You my past,
present and future problems,
habits, character defects, attitudes,
livelihood, resources, finances,
medical coverage, occupation and
all my relationships.
I give You my health,
physical appearance, disabilities,
family, marriage, children
and friendships.
I ask You to take Lordship over
every aspect of my life.
I surrender to You all my hurt,
pain, worry, doubt, fear and anxiety,
and I ask You to wash me clean.
I release everything into Your
compassionate care.
Please speak to me clearly, Lord.
Open my ears to hear Your voice.
Open my heart to commune with
You more deeply.
I want to feel Your loving embrace.
Open the doors that need to be
opened and close the doors
that need to be closed.
Please set my feet upon the
straight and narrow road
that leads to everlasting life.
Amen.

A Surrender Prayer of St. Ignatius of Loyola

Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
My memory, my understanding
And my entire will,
All I have and call my own.
You have given all to me.
To You, Lord, I return it.
Everything is Yours; do with it what You will.
Give me only Your love and Your grace.
That is enough for me.
Amen.
