They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course (PSALM 82:5).
What a lamentation! It’s so striking that the Psalmist says, “…all the foundations of the earth are out of course.” This means things are out of direction; they’re in a state of confusion. It’s like what he says in Psalm 11:3: “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” In the world today, a lot of foundations are out of course. Some people have tried to destroy the economic foundations of different nations. They’ve also tried to crush the foundations of godliness in our societies. Same for health, education, family and more.
As Christians, we shouldn’t fold our hands and watch the devil wreak havoc in different nations and in the lives of men. God expects us to do something about it. He says, “Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked”(Psalm 82:3-4). Don’t be ignorant of this. Don’t be content with only meeting your personal needs and chasing your own dreams. You have what it takes to change the course of your world.
Hebrews 11:3 says, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God….” The word “framed” is “katartizō” (Greek), and it means to repair or adjust, to restore, mend or make perfect. This means that with faith, you can repair the foundations of the earth that are out of place and put them back on course. You can fix those circumstances and situations in your world that are inconsistent with the will of God.
By declaring faith-filled words, you give shape, structure and beauty to your world. It makes no difference how bad the current situation is, you can mend what needs mending, you can restore what needs restoration, and you can fix anything that’s been ruined. What you need is to use the Word to keep the adversary in defeat. Use it to frame the course of your world to line up with God’s plan and purpose. Hallelujah!
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for giving me the dominion over all things. The course of my life is consistent with your perfect will, plans and purposes. I refuse to be a victim. Rather, I live victoriously over the adversary and the adversities of life. With the Word of God on my lips, I reign in dominion over circumstances, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
ROMANS 8:19-21 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
OBADIAH 1:21 And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’s.
JEREMIAH 22:3 Thus saith the LORD; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place.
