Do You Know Him?

Today’s reading is Psalm 48.

By the time you will read this…you will know the winners of the midterm election this week. As I write this tonight before the election..I’m reminded the results don’t really matter.

For behold, the kings assembled;

they came on together.

as soon as they saw it, they were


they were in panic; they took

to flight.

Trembling took hold of them


anguish as of women in labor.

Psalm 48:4-6

Earlier in the chapter, Psalm 48:1 says..

Great is the Lord and greatly to

be praised

in the City of our God!

These verses are why I say the election results don’t really matter. In the end, EVERYONE will bow and praise Him…yes…even the earthly kings. God is working His plan regardless of who wins. We must trust and believe in this despite if we agree or disagree with who is office. Eventually, He will establish Zion, the City of God, where He will guide us Psalm 48 tells us.

Walk about Zion, go around her,

number her towers,

consider well her ramparts,

go through her citadels,

that you may tell the next generation

that this is God,

our God forever and ever.

He will guide us forever.

Psalm 48:12-14

If you’ve never seen this powerful video with the words of Dr. S.M. Lockridge, please watch. I know who my King is, and He never served a public office.

Do you know Him?

I live in Bloomington, Illinois with my wife Shannon and 4 children. I grew up in Central Illinois with Lutheran roots. We moved to the area in 2011 and began attending Eastview Christian Church where I now lead a Small Group. It's been awesome to see God's plan for our lives and our growing thirst for knowledge of His Word and a closer relationship with Jesus through our move to Bloomington. Professionally, I'm a wealth management advisor with Northwestern Mutual.
