Meditation verse: As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness. Psalm 17:15
Welcome to Cascade Mountain Bible Church
Albert Einstein is famous in part because of his work on relativity. One aspect of this focused on perspective. I was reminded of this as I read psalm 17. Consider the last three verses of this psalm:
Deliver my soul from the wicked by your sword, from men by your hand, O LORD, from men of the world whose portion is in this life. You fill their womb with treasure; they are satisfied with children, and they leave their abundance to their infants. As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness. Psalm 17:13-15
From the perspective of this life, it often seems as though evil triumphs. Those who fail to fear God often succeed in this life. They appear to have every advantage, and all their plans work out. But…
There is more to our existence than this short life. When we actually stop and consider, we know that ultimately those who fail to honor God, those who fail to humble themselves before Him, are doomed. There is a day of reckoning, and those who fail to remember this will suffer on that day.
In contrast, those who choose the fear of the Lord will be satisfied on that day.
Praise be to our God!
