The mighty will fall

If there is anything we can learn from History it is this: "The mighty will fall!"
Ordinary people often despair when they see politicians, leaders and government officials getting away with "murder", but we need to hold onto the fact that they will also fall!
Perhaps Justice takes a little longer than we would like, but in the end, I believe that God will bring  EVERYONE to account. It may be a naive way of thinking of it, but it keeps me sane, when I see the mess the world is in.

Read these words from 1 Samuel 1 and see what Hannah had to say:

The bow of the mighty is now broken,
    and those who stumbled are now strong.

Those who were well fed are now starving,
    and those who were starving are now full.
The childless woman now has seven children,
    and the woman with many children wastes away.

The Lord gives both death and life;
    he brings some down to the grave but raises others up.
The Lord makes some poor and others rich;
    he brings some down and lifts others up.

Unknown - "The mighty will fall. The strong will break. The courageous will cower.The proud will die."

2 Samuel 1:27 - "How the mighty have fallen! The weapons of war have perished!"

Living in Grace
