  • Samantha on Psalms 75:7
    god has worked through my life even though he put me through some hard times i got through them with faith in god. i may not go to church as often as i should but i will always follow by god.
  • Juliet emefesi on Psalms 75:7
    Verse 7 of Psalm 75 to my mind is saying God judges right even when you are put down or when you are promoted. Some people see it right if they are promoted but feels bad if they or their favoured ones are put down.It also shows that no position or situation is permanent, God can always do a reshufflement.
