For those with eyes to see, man – proud, arrogant man who shakes his fist at God when things are going well – has been exposed as blind, dumb, terror-stricken, and utterly unable to cope. God has revealed that for all men’s boasted wisdom, they tremble and quake at something which will not even harm, much less carry to the grave, the vast majority of them. They have shaken their fists at God, yet when their props are pulled from under them they are left frightened and insecure, fleeing to their earthly rulers for protection and answers. O pitiful creature of dust! So boastful, so swaggering, when all is going well – so fearful and foolish when the things you trust in, and set your affections on, are taken away from you!
“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD…. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is” (Jer. 17:5,7).
Let the prayer of the believer be that the Lord would grant true repentance, and saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, to many in these extraordinary times.
