I read with new eyes Psalm 11 and David’s response to people who question, “What can we do?” when so much evil happens all around them. David claims two important truths:
- In the Lord I take refuge. (Psalm 11:1)
- The Lord is in His holy temple; the Lord is on His heavenly throne. (Psalm 11:4)
The comfort–our only hope–is that we take refuge in God and that He rules everything. When we come with questions, anger, hopelessness, despair, anxiety, and all our desperation over terrible news at home and abroad, we listen to a wise king who gave the only answer. Now we take refuge in God who reigns.
