In this Psalm, we look at the prayer of David that God would fall on his enemies and ask how this is compatible with the New Testament command that we love our enemies. We see that with God, there is a time at which His patience ends and judgment falls. In trying to understand how we may discern this timing and pray appropriately, we see:
God provides His enemies with time to repent and we should also pray in love that they would do this. However, if they will not repent, they slowly fill God’s cup of wrath until it is full and He pours it out upon them.
