HIGHLIGHT VERSES | Psalms 62:9-12 Surely men of low degree are a vapor, Men of high degree are a lie; If they are weighed on the scales, They are altogether lighter than vapor. Do not trust in oppression, Nor vainly hope in robbery; If riches increase, Do not set your heart on them. God has spoken once, Twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God. Also to You, O Lord, belongs mercy; For You render to each one according to his work. NKJV
SOME SIGNPOST WORDS | ‘FRET NOT THE DESPOT’
SOME OBSERVATIONS | Ultimate power belongs to Almighty God. The visible manifestation of such ultimate power is the Throne of highest honor, which is ‘high and lifted up.’ From this seat of exalted magnitude all other seats of power, both seen and unseen, both heavenly and earthly are allowed and set up as He sees fit, Him exalting them, establishing them, or ridiculing and removing them at His Sovereign will. No one rules without God’s say-so. No one. All ruling men then, especially despots and dictators, are but vaporous lies. They give the impression of permanent power, of a longstanding rule, of an unending dynasty, only to be wiped away from the screen of humanities temporal historical view by the triple wiper blades of time, disease, and death. Remember that all earthly thrones are but temporary vanities. A CALL TO ACTION | Your place in history is just that, it is but a moment on the time line of the Sovereign Lord. All things pass. Listen. All people pass away. Therefore, live right and live well, and fret not over evil doers.
