In the Lord I put my trust…

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.

Psalm 11

In the LORD I put my trust;

​​How can you say to my soul,

​​“Flee as a bird to your mountain”?

For look! The wicked bend their bow,

​​They make ready their arrow on the string,

​​That they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart.

 ​​If the foundations are destroyed,

​​What can the righteous do?

​​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.

This morning’s reflections were in harmony and unity with today’s reading.  The question why say to the mountains to fall on us if we are his children came?  What have we to fear?  Those with lack of faith will seek, not his face, but a way out.  The believer runs to the Lord, not the mountains.  They will see his face; they will see justice; they will see righteousness.  They are charged only with seeking Him.  We don’t ‘fix-it’; he does.
