The mood of Psalm 11 is panic, but David’s is peace. In view of David’s attitude, this psalm can be listed with the psalms of confidence (Pss 4, 16, 23, 27, 62, 125, 131). Counselors can mean well, but can also steer one’s eyes from the truth. For example,
…if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps 11:3).
It can also be interpreted as for the foundations will be destroyed; what has the righteous done? In other words, “In view of the crumbling of the theocratic society, what can one righteous person, out of a shrinking remnant, do?”
Is not the Bible filled with examples of what God can do with one?
Lord, I realize I am only one, but I am one. And, I have seen what you can do when one is surrendered to you. Guard my mind against thinking hopeless thoughts. And, keep me from believing I am totally unable to make a difference.
