The Doorpost: Put your confidence in the Lord

“Everything’s falling apart. They won’t listen. There’s nothing we can do.”

Today, we hear from many who say there is no hope. Sometimes they are explaining their inaction. Some are selling a “solution” they say will protect us.

Apparently there were plenty of alarmists around when David wrote Psalm 11. His response should guide us all. “In the Lord I take refuge. How can you say ‘Flee … if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?’”

In verse 4 David reminds us, “The Lord is in His holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven; His eyes see, His eyelids test the children of man.” In verse 7 he assures us, “the upright shall behold His face.”

When others tell you to flee, make sure you put your confidence in the Lord and obey Him with courage.

For the Kingdom,
