Does out world seem filled with fear? Does everything seem out of control? You aren’t the only one who feels that way. All countries are having trouble, and mostly big trouble. This morning the Lord led me to this psalm of David’s: Psalm Eleven.
“I trust in the Lord for protection.
So why do you say to me,
‘Fly like a bird to the mountains for safety!
The wicked are stringing their bows
and fitting their arrows on the bowstrings.
They shoot from the shadows
at those whose hearts are right.
The foundations of law and order have collapsed.
What can the righteous do?’
But the Lord is in his holy Temple;
the Lord still rules from heaven.
He watches everyone closely,
examining every person on earth.
The Lord examines both the righteous and the wicked.
He hates those who love violence.
He will rain down blazing coals and burning sulfur on the wicked,
punishing them with scorching winds.
For the righteous Lord loves justice.
The virtuous will see his face.”
from the New Living Translation
