In Psalm 9:20, David prays “Put them in fear, O Lord: that the nations may know themselves to be but men.” We tend to forget that great nations are made up of human beings that brush their teeth with one brush at a time. Each politically prominent person is just a man or woman “whose breath is in his (or her) nostrils.” If God was to invisibly place His holy hand over our nose and mouth, it’s curtains for us no matter how big the show. Jesus spoke of a man that God said He would snuff out. He said to him, “Tonight your soul is required of you.” We are like a small candle on a very big cake. God is the one who sparks our life and He is the One who puts out the flame, despite natural circumstances that may surround our demise. The world speaks of and trembles at the thought of the “the grim reaper.” We know better. Jesus told us Whom to fear.
