Key Verse: V1 “Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.”
Are you feeling sad and confused in this world of wickedness and unrighteousness?
Are you feeling insecure and aimless in this ever changing world?
Are you feeling tired and weary in this stressful society?
1. God is your Righteous King
V1 “Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.”
The ungodly prospers and the righteous suffers and things are getting from bad to worse. Yet in spite of the doom and gloom, God is still in control as He is the righteous King and He is searching for man to follow Him and His righteousness.
Psalms 73:12 “Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.”
Psalms 73:17 “Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.”
2. God is your Hiding Place
V2 “And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest;…”
God is our hiding place and shelter in time of strong winds and great storms if we are to believe in Him. God never fails to protect and guide us in our greatest need and trouble.
Psalms 32:7 “Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.”
3. God is your Great Rock
V2 “And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.”
What a promise and an assurance from God that He is our rivers of water and a great rock in a time of thirst, weariness and tiredness! In this world where the only constant is change, God is our great rock that never changes. Let us take comfort to know that things may change, circumstances may change, people may change, our loved ones may change, but God never changes!
Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”

God is our rock when all else is sinking sand.
