But the Lord


Like David, we can claim the powerful truth of the Lord's sovereignty -- no matter what circumstances we find ourselves in!

"But the LORD is in his holy Temple; the LORD still rules from heaven. He watches everyone closely, examining every person on earth." Psalm 11:4 (NLT)

But is a simple, yet extremely powerful three letter word. But means contrary to. What did David write contrary to?

In the proceeding verses of Psalm 11, David proclaimed how he trusts the Lord to protect him. His proclamation is followed by the details of how the wicked were preparing their weapons for attack. David then belted out the transition statement of power: But the Lord.

Regardless of his current circumstances, David rested assured of two certainties:

  • The Lord is in His holy Temple (vs. 4)
  • The Lord still rules from heaven (vs. 4)

We can count on these two guarantees as well! Contrary to downsizing and divorce, buyouts and payoffs, layoffs and let downs, disappointments and despair, as God’s children, we have these blessed assurances too.

Claim these powerful truths! Write down an uncertain circumstance you are currently facing. Before you end the sentence, write the transition statement of power: “But the Lord is in His holy Temple and still rules from heaven.” Read the sentence aloud and rest in the peace God’s Word offers you.
