“But God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts another. For a cup is in the hand of the Lord, and the wine foams; it is well mixed, and He pours out of this; Surely all the wicked of the earth must drain and drink down its dregs.” (Psalm 75:7-8)

Judgement will come when it comes, but all you have to do is look at history to see how all of the proud have fallen and in the end, wind up in death. The Lord will separate those who turn to Him from those who turn away. You, O man, look to the Lord and do not worry about what belongs to the Lord. The Lord lifts up and brings down whom He will for His purposes.

Lord, You have made me to be me and I often want to be someone other than who I am. Guide me, O Lord, in the way You have created me to be, for You are the Creator and the One in whose hands are all things. Lead me in the way You would have me go and by Your Spirit encourage me to always follow in Your way. You exalt and bring low. You are the Judge of all things.

Lord Jesus, God in the flesh, You lowered Yourself to be as one of us. Such things are too deep for me to understand. By Your example of humility, lead me to be content with the portion You have given me in life that I may learn what it is You would have me learn. You have given me grace to overcome this life’s obstacles; so help me overcome each hurdle that is before me. Amen.
