“In the LORD put I my trust; how say ye then to my soul, that she should flee as a bird unto the hill?”
Thus, the Psalmist writes the opening of the eleventh Psalm. As the United States presidential election begins in earnest today, with Iowans going to caucus tonight in their famous first votes in the primary season, for both parties, we think of the great national challenges that we are facing. But, of course, we each face our own private struggles. Verse three of this Psalm is well-known for summing up a hopeless situation:
“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
The rest of this inspired Word from Another World gives God’s answer to the question. And the response is clear. What is it? The answer is that we can leave it all with the Lord. He is still on the throne (v. 4). He knows our condition and He sees the evil and the good (vv. 5-6). God will judge (v. 7). You’ll see (v. 8).
That’s it. But that’s enough.
Thank you, Lord.
