“11God is a righteous judge, and a God who feels indignation every day.” (Psalm 7:11)

You are righteous and holy, and Your eyes cannot even look upon impurity (Hab. 1:13).  Yet the world around us spirals downward to further and further godlessness with every passing day.  The name of Christ is reproached and belittled, and You patiently endure hundreds of millions of people who were created for Your glory yet who live in total rebellion against You.  Guard our hearts, Lord, from any thoughts, attitudes, or conduct that would bring You indignation.  May our lives be a fragrant aroma to You.  And grip us, Lord, to feel indignation over the things that bring You indignation.  As the psalmist wrote, “Hot indignation seizes me because of the wicked, who forsake your law.” (Psalm 119:53).  Make our hearts so united to Yours that the very things which grieve You would grieve us as well.  Forbid that we should be apathetic toward those who slander and mock Your glory.
