Sermon outline


If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Ps 11:3)

        1. David lives in a time when foundations were crumbling. What did people tell David to do? (Ps 11:1-3)
        2. We live in a time when foundations are crumbling. What are people telling Christians to do?
        3. Psalm 11 gives us instruction that is useful for our present age.
          1. David doesn’t agree to Flee or fight (Ps 11:1-3).
          2. Instead, he declares, “I will trust in the Lord…” (Ps 11:1a)

A third option: Trust in the Lord

          1. Refuge in the LORD (Ps 11:1, 7:1, 118:8, 144:2)
            1. Application for us:
              1. David was in a unique place because of the promises of God.
              2. But we do have promises:
                1. A Promise of suffering with Christ unto glory (Rom 8:17)
                2. A Promise that Suffering produces perseverance, character, and hope. (Rom 5:3-5)
                3. A Promise that suffering leads to God’s comfort (2Cor 1:5)
                4. A Promise that God will never leave us or forsake us (Dt 31:6-8, Heb 13:5-6)
              3. When hardship comes, entrust yourself to the one who is faithful and will not abandon you.
            2. David trusts because he understands God’s character and position (Ps 10-11)
              1. His Character
              2. His Throne
              3. Our God judges all (Ps 11:5-6)
          2. Pray (Ps 11, Mt 10:14)
          3. Live righteously (Ps 11:7, Rom 3:22)
