Day 11, Psalm 11

This psalm speaks of the confidence we can have to stand firm in our faith and trust that God will do what is right.  From His throne, God watches over all the people and knows what we are doing.  He discerns the good from the evil.  In His wisdom, He lets things play out until the proper time comes to act.  When He acts, He will act justly.  This is His work.

While we wait and watch for Him to act, we are called to focus on our own behavior.  Our instructions are to love the Lord God with all our hearts, with all our souls, with all our strength and with all our minds, and to love our neighbor as ourselves.  When we do this, we are assured, at the end of the psalm, that we will live in God’s presence.  A very worthy endeavor with an eternal reward. 

See you tomorrow for Psalm 12
