Dark cruelty overcome by sweet promises

Psalms 74:20 Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.

The Psalmist makes a statement that the dark places of the earth are full of habitations of cruelty.

Wherever Satan or one of his demons are, we know are very dark places. We also know that when he has his way with someone, his treatment of them is extremely cruel.

Abusive husbands and fathers, cheating and lying spouse, drug and pornography addictions, false hope through a false gospel etc.

All these things are true world wide and in the country of Guatemala.

The Psalmist makes another statement in the beginning of the verse, he asks God to respect the covenant that He has with them.

Just as God is a covenant or promise keeping God in the Old Testament, He does the same in the New.

God keeps His covenants – promises
