On Whose Side Are You?

Read: Psalm 73

During the Civil War in America, one of the advisors of President Lincoln said that he was grateful that God was on the side of the Union. Lincoln immediately replied, “Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side, my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.” I believe it is a great challenge for us who assume that God is there to support our plans in life, our decisions, our desires, and our perspectives. Lincoln’s reply reminds us that even our best plans may not be on the lines of God’s desires and plans.
