“Let them extol him in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders. He turns rivers into a desert, springs of water into thirsty ground, a fruitful land into a salty waste, because of the evil of its inhabitants.”
Praise the LORD for His justice! He doesn’t overlook the evil in this world but overcomes it with His love. It’s no secret that when people have chosen evil, God allows them to experience the destruction that comes out of those choices. In this case, God took away the basic needs of the people who chose evil over Him. Ultimately, God wants all the glory. When we focus on ourselves and try to control our lives, God is faithful to remind us of our need for Him.
"GOD DOESN'T OVERLOOK THE EVIL IN THIS WORLD BUT OVERCOMES IT WITH HIS LOVE."
LORD,thank you for not letting me get away with pushing You away! Thank you for being a loving judge and working on behalf of the good of Your people. Please forgive me for trying to live on my strength. Help me to see the world through Your eyes and to give You the glory for everything!
