But someday…someday…God is going to right every wrong. Someday, all the poor and powerless will be invited to sit down at a great feast in the presence of God. Someday, every tear will be wiped away and we no longer experience pain and suffering and loss.
Normally, I do my devotional Bible reading in the ESV version. But this week, I’ve also been doing some reading in the Message version. I love how Eugene Peterson translates Psalm 22:25-29-
Here in this great gathering for worship
I have discovered this praise-life.
And I’ll do what I promised right here
in front of the God-worshipers.
Down-and-outers sit at God’s table
and eat their fill.
Everyone on the hunt for God
is here, praising him.
“Live it up, from head to toe.
Don’t ever quit!”
From the four corners of the earth
people are coming to their senses,
are running back to God.
are falling on their faces before him.
God has taken charge;
from now on he has the last word.
All the power-mongers are before him
All the poor and powerless, too
Along with those who never got it together
Amen! God will have the last word. Someday, someday, we will find our true home.
