For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
The root word picture meaning for the phrase "for they shall soon" is: "mountain water".
Here the focus is on how fast, how swiftly change will come.
Psalm 69:17 And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.
As I look back on my 59 years of life one things stands out above all else, the speed with which change has occurred through technology.
Isn't it strange how I can so easily attribute the speed of change to the ingenuity of man. Yet, I remain indifferent to this image of the power of God entering into my circumstances, like a river cascading powerfully down a mountain, filling the air with sound and transforming everything that it touches.
Today, remember you serve the God of the "mountain water", who is mighty to save.
