If the Foundations Be Destroyed (Psalm 11) - 5/24/20
-The question is in verse 3, but the answer is in verse 1.
Here’s what David knew:
1. He knew he could trust God, v. 1
2. He knew God was sovereign and in control, v. 4.
3. He knew God would eventually judge and then reward and punish accordingly, vv. 5-7.
-Do you know these things?
-David knew he had a solid foundation on which to stand!
2 Tim. 2:19
1 - Our Foundation Will Stand.
2 - Our Faith Is Sealed - God Knows Who Is His
3 - The Flock Will Be Submitted
#1 RETREAT IS NOT AN OPTION ! (v. 1)
#2 A RESPONSE IS IN ORDER! (vv. 2-3)
#3 RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OUR OBLIGATION! (vv. 4-7)
