Men  Of Rank  Are  A Lie

There is  so much  political  and social unrest  in this world.     And,  it seriously affects  our well being.     Terrors  and injustices  of every sort  are rapidly increasing  around the world,  and we,  as individuals,  are unable  to do anything  about it all.     The roots  of the problems  are many  and greatly varied  —  greed;  hatred;  desire for power,  attention  and control;  lies;  immorality;  and godlessness,  along with every sin  you can think of.

As King David faced  these sorts  of problems  and the evil people  who commit them,  he noted  in Psalm 62:9,

Men  of low degree  are only vanity,  and men  of rank  are a lie;
In the balances  they go up;
They  are together  lighter  than breath.

That’s something  to remember.     When we see  all the havoc  and pains  evil people  constantly  and arrogantly wreak,  they seem  so powerful  and  in control.     We can only think  of our weaknesses.     Nevertheless,  God is  in control  and they will have  to face  the balances  of God’s righteous justice.     They have  no power  when they face  eternal judgment.     They look powerful  on earth,  but that’s  “a lie”.      Their evils  are more  short lived  than they can imagine.

And so,  God’s children  of faith  look  to Him  as they live  according to  His righteousness.     With trusting hearts,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  Your salvation  is eternal.”

Love,
Margaret
