When Foundations are Shaken
The Capitol Hill riot of January 6th is another tragic, violent and unsettling event compounding the trauma of an already fractured nation. Fear has been multiplied across America and across the globe. The foundations of this country are indeed shaken.
Almost 3,000 years ago, a poet found himself in similar circumstances. Out of a sense of desperation, fear and anxiety he cried out, “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps 11:3) In response to his own question he concluded with this statement, “For the Lord is righteous; he loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold his face” (11:7).
This text suggests a three-fold response to broken foundations:
1. The Lord is righteous – the Judge of all the earth does what is right – we can be confident in him, even in the midst of fracturing foundations.
2. God loves righteous deeds – the righteous person is known by their deeds of righteousness.
3. Keep an eternal perspective – no matter what happens on this earth, we will see his face if we are righteous.
God calls his people to restore foundations through faith in him and deeds of righteousness!
