“In the Lord I take refuge. How then can you say to me:
‘Flee like a bird to your mountain. For look,
the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows
against the strings to shoot from the shadows
at the upright in heart. When the foundations
are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?’”
To be honest when I read these verses I often think of the mess our world is in today. Yes, the wicked have schemes, and attempt to take down the upright in heart, but look at what the psalmist is trying to do here.
We don’t have to flee like a bird. Have you ever been walking and had the birds take off as you walk by? We don’t have to be like that!
Yes, and in many cases our foundations are being destroyed and we can be tempted to get discouraged. I know I do!
But the next few verses after this portion tell us God is still on the throne! He will take care of the wickedness, he will make everything right.
The point is we can trust in Him!! Hallelujah!!
Lord God, we place our trust in You today afresh. Strengthen us and our faith! Help us not to focus on our circumstances, or the negative in our world today, even if everything is falling apart! Help us to have eyes of faith. Amen.
