LORD [Yahovah] is known [yada`] by the
judgment [mishpat] which he executeth: [`asah] the wicked [rasha`] is
snared [naqash] in the work [po`al] of his own hands. [kaph]
Higgaion. [higgayown] Selah. [celah]KJV-Interlinear
16 The Lord
has made Himself known; He has executed judgment. In the work of his own hands
the wicked is snared. Higgaion Selah. NASB
God has revealed Himself to all of mankind. He has revealed Himself through the principles of creation and all that we see. He has certainly given us His written Word. Nearly everything in life gives us some form of teaching aid from which to learn about God, whether it is the female concept discussed previously, or whether it is our view of the stars and the vastness of outer space, or the organization and design of things under the microscope. No matter where we look we can find examples of God and His existence.
In contrast, Satan has desires to rule everything, but he has created nothing except for evil, which is a singularly destructive force.
God has sovereignty over all things. He executes judgment and discernment, where we can all understand right from wrong. Unfortunately most do not pay attention to the lessons we learn in life. Most don't make the connection to God and our individual destinies.
God is the author of truth. God is the communicator of truth. At no time in history, regardless of how the historical text books describe history, at no time has man ever created or invented truth, nor laws, nor anything fair in or for life. God provides all of the standards and all of the guidelines for truth for the rule of law, and social norms and standards for humanity.
Higgaion, 'higgatown', meditation, solemn, ponder study. Think about what you learn. Do not simply read the words in the Bible lessons, or the words in the Bible verses, but think about them. Ponder them. Commit the concepts to memory. Commit verses to memory. Learn and utilize what you learn in your daily life. Keep yourself in fellowship constantly.
Study daily without finding excuses as to why you do not have time for study. Memorize verses. Pray daily, morning, noon, and night. Monitor your own life, the way you think, the way you treat others, the way you do your work, confess accordingly for maintaining your fellowship environment and spiritual state.
Adjust your life to comply with the will of God as an 'obedient wife' adjusts her life to the will of her husband. Adjust your life to hold yourself accountable and be responsible as a 'responsible husband' should be to his family.
Neither concept is the greater nor the lessor. Both principles apply to us all with respect to Bible doctrine and our relationship to God.
The alternative is to join the 'nations' in their self dug pit of misery and disaster.
Selah - the band plays on. Grace. Gods plan continues whether you comply or not. Gods plan does not depend on you or anyone. God is greater than all of us put together.
You can go with His plan and be blessed and prosper, or you can buck the system and suffer the consequences. You always have a choice.
