When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?
The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord is on his heavenly throne. He observes the sons of men; his eyes examine them.
This is certainly an appropriate question for our time: when the foundations are being destroyed – financial disasters, moral decline, unsure political and governmental agendas, personal struggles – what can the righteous do? That question is clearly answered in vs. 4: we can remember that God still reigns. He is in harge and WE belong to Him.
