Daily Readings – Here Comes the Judge!

Day 1810: Have a Super Saturday!

Scripture:  “I said to the boastful, ‘Do not deal boastfully,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up the horn. Do not lift up your horn on high; do not speak with a stiff neck.’” For exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the Judge!  Psalm 75:4-7a

Thoughts/questions: In response to the latest actions by ISIL/ISIS, the leadership in the U.S. has confidently stated that ‘we’ will respond and defeat our enemy. In times past, responses were a bit different.

Abraham Lincoln – “…I know that the Lord is always on the side of the right. But it is my constant anxiety and prayer that I and this nation should be on the Lord’s side.” 

George Washington – “It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favors.”

Our nation MUST understand this – But God is the Judge! God is opposed to the proud. May we never boast and think we can do this by ourselves!

Suggested prayer: Lord God, may our country always seek Your guidance . . .
