Psalm 59: Windbag

Posted by on Mar 6, 2017 in Blog | 2 comments

You can find them just about anywhere. Organizations, states, movements, even nations have been ruled by them. They show up in churches where power is up for grabs. They feed on control and indignantly bail out when none is to be had.

They seem bigger than life, loud and full of swagger that steals the spotlight wherever they go. But truth be known … they’re small, shallow posers preserving their fragile lives with a furious, yet feeble bark and bite.

No need to fear them.

They have far more reason to be afraid. Arrogance is laughable in the heavens where there is but one God, holy and utterly supreme. It is a costly gaffe to mistake the love of God for a willingness on His part to yield His throne to any whom He created. “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God.” (Hebrews 10:31)


  1. I’m trying to see how you are relating Ps 59 and Hebrews 10:31 to your comments.

    • Thanks for the comment. The immediate context of Hebrews 10:31 is a caution to those who might presume upon the Spirit of grace. However, the statement about falling into the hands of the living God can, I think, be used as a general truth applicable to all of humanity, especially those who arrogantly vie for power or control that is rightly reserved for God alone.
