Today the British Isles awoke to what someone would describe as an earthquake. The British public voted to leave the EU. Many people are concerned for their future livelihoods.
Psalm 2 says,
“Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans?
But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them.
Now then, you kings, act wisely! Be warned, you rulers of the earth! Serve the LORD with reverent fear, and rejoice with trembling.”
Psalms 2:1, 4, 10-11 NLT
In Psalm 11 David decides not to run away in fear when faced with overwhelming situation.
“In the Lord I take refuge. How then can you say to me: “Flee like a bird to your mountain.
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 everyone on earth; his eyes examine them.”
Psalm 11:1, 3-4 NIV
Like, David of old who fought many battles and won them because his God helped him, let us trust in God. Let us thank and praise him for who he is and for what he has done for you. Do not give way to despair and fear. Do not rebel. Instead we are to pray for those in leadership so we can live in peace.
Like an old chorus that goes, the name of The Lord, is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and they are safe. I will not run away to the mountains.
