when the foundation shakes

It's easy to get discouraged in this world when we look around ad see everything falling down. It seems like the foundation of everything good has been shaken. The wicked are attacking, working in the shadows to try to take down the remnant who still follow God.

"'If the foundations are crumbling,
is there hope for the righteous?'"
~Psalm 11:3

Sometimes, it feels like we have no hope.

And we would be hopeless--if it weren't for God.

No matter how the world is falling apart around us, the righteous still have hope. That's because we are not righteous in our own power or by our own doing, but because we are covered by the blood of the only One who is righteous, Jesus. We have hope because our righteousness is wrapped up in His, sealed by His victory over death and the grave. We have hope because our Foundation is God, and He is never shaken.

"But the Eternal has not moved; He remains in His holy temple. He sits squarely on His heavenly throne. He observes the sons of Adam and daughters of Eve, examining us within and without, exploring every fiber of our beings."
~Psalm 11:4

This world can wear us down. It can leave us thinking that things are hopeless and we're on our own.

We have to remember that God is still on the throne. He will never be shaken, and He is our Hope.
Just be held.
