Today’s Readings: Deut 23:1‐25:19, Luke 10:13‐37, Ps 75:1‐10, Prov 12:12‐14
Psalms 75:7 But it is God who executes judgment, putting down one and lifting up another.
One of the statements I remember from our Jewish tour guide is: “The king is not really king. The one who crowns the king is king.” He was referring to God being the one who chose the kings of Israel and anointed Saul and David through Samuel. God was the one who was in control of Israel. Not Saul or David.
Apply: I pray that I will recognize God’s control in my life. I pray that he will be faithful to his Word and execute righteous judgment in the life of those around me.
How have you seen God lift up and put down the lives close to you?
