First Things @ First

Ministry Perspectives,


The Psalmist David asks the question in Psalm 11:3, "if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?"

Good question in a period of history when it seems that the very foundations of our faith and future are being undermined daily by a general desire to cast off restraint and do one's own thing.

I'm thankful that David knew the answer to the question. I'm grateful God directed him to write it down for the benefit of those who would come later. You read it in the next few verses, verses 4-7, "The LORD is in His holy temple, the LORD'S throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men. The LORD tests the righteous, but the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates. Upon the wicked He will rain coals; fire and brimstone and a burning wind shall be the portion of their cup. For the LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; His countenance beholds the upright."

When things appear to be coming unraveled, they're not without His oversight. And should God permit it, there is a purpose in it. We must trust and obey His word believing He continues to hold all things together according to His faithfulness.

God is both present and powerful in overseeing His creation and redeems those who confess they are ruined in sin. The rest, He disposes of in His time. 

Don't fret and do not become frustrated with how things are. The LORD is on it and He will bring the righteous through it.

For today, that's quite sufficient!!


God is worthy of our reverence, praise, and thanksgiving!!
