He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the chariots with fire. (Psalms 46:9 ESV)
Some think it’s money, some think it’s girls, some believe it belongs to the man. It’s thinking like that which gets folks up in arms looking to get their side to dominate.
A reading of history is about the rise and fall of efforts to run the joint. All in their own way a rejection of the true Sovereign of the universe. In their own way it is their way of suggesting they should be in complete control. Efforts leading to skirmishes, turmoil and disarray.
For those who know who the true Sovereign is, there is a hiding place, there is a city that won’t crumble as others go by the wayside. This place of safety is not a cocoon that leaves us unfeeling to what else is going on. It is a place to appreciate God for who He is and what He ushers in as we follow Him. Namely a rule where we will study war no more.
For His Name’s Sake
C. L. J. Dryden
