Lincoln: the maker governs

Thursday, July 4, 2024
Therefore, you kings, be wise;
    be warned, you rulers of the earth.
Serve the LORD with fear
    and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest he be angry
    and you be destroyed in your way,
    for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
    —Psalm 2:10-12 (NIV)
    Though with our limited understandings we may not be able to comprehend it, yet we cannot but believe, that he who made the world still governs it.
    ... Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865), letter to Eliza Gurney, 1862, in Lincoln’s Greatest Speech: The Second Inaugural, Ronald C. White, Simon and Schuster, 2006, p. 142 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 2:7-12; Deut. 10:14; Ps. 24:1-2; 72:11; Matt. 13:14-15; Luke 10:21; John 10:29; Phil. 2:9-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your sovereignty is universal and absolute.
