The Unshakable Foundations

"For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart. If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?" (Psalm 11:2-3)

Often we hear or feel the drum beat of those who oppose the work of God. Many would undermine our faith in God's promises and try to shake our confidence in the authority of His Word. David's short answers are wonderful sources of strength for us each day.

Trust in the LORD (Psalm 11:1)--He has not forsaken us (Psalm 9:10), and we can "taste" and see that God is good (Psalm 34:8). No matter what happens, God knows what we need, and He promises that we will be taken care of (Psalm 37:3). If we trust in Him and do not lean on our own wisdom, God promises to direct all of our life decisions (Proverbs 3:5-6).

The LORD is on His throne (Psalm 11:4)--The picture of God's majesty can be easily lost in our sin-cursed world. If we are not going to be overwhelmed by the wicked, we must see God "high and lifted up" (Isaiah 6:1), surrounded by the great host of heaven, recognizing that "heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool" (Isaiah 66:1).

The LORD sees everything (Psalm 11:4-5)--His "eyes behold the nations" (Psalm 66:7) and He "knoweth the thoughts of man" (Psalm 94:11). There is no place that will hide us from His sight (Psalm 139:7-12).

The LORD judges everything (Psalm 11:5-6)--God loves justice (Psalm 37:28) and will finally come to judge the earth (Psalm 96:13). "The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down. The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD" (Psalm 146:9-10). HMM III
