It is God alone who judges.
It is God alone who judges; he decides who will rise and who will fall.
Praises and honor be to the Holy Father in Jesus’ precious name !
The subject verse from the Book of Psalms highlights the eternal predominance of God’s righteous judgement over all and everything. We the mere mortals can never comprehend the Almighty’s judgement. No-doubt, many times we think why such and such things took place or why it happened in such a fashion? But never really see the light or the truth behind every act of God. Unless, we seek God himself the answers, we shall never be able to know. As the Bible says, he is the righteous Judge. The following verse from Psalms puts it this way:
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.Psalms 89:14 NIV
Indeed it is God who decides the rise and fall of all. It may be the nations, organisations, people or individuals. It is God who gives success to a person or allow somebody to fail. Here there is one important truth that we should never forget. Failure is the result of God’s absence in a person’s life. Generally, this happens when we go afar from God because of our worldly lusts or evil desires. Moreover, the rise of some nations or fall of some is also according to the will of the Almighty God. Therefore, it is not for the people to boast of their rise or fall of someone else. Rather, we should acknowledge the act of the Omnipotent God.
Brethren, let us be ever thankful and praise the Living God. For He exalts the meek and humbles the pride. Let us always glorify the Almighty God for his wondrous decisions; in Jesus’ loving and precious name alone. Amen.
