"When the whirlwind passes, the wicked is no more,
But the righteous has an everlasting foundation."
The Lord is an Everlasting Foundation for those who are righteous. And who are the righteous? Those who claim Christ as their Savior. What a relief to know that our righteousness doesn't depend on our goodness, but rather on the goodness of Jesus Christ. I know for myself there are far too many times when my pride and self-centeredness would count me among the wicked if it weren't for Him. When life becomes a whirlwind the wicked lack the foundation needed to stand through the storm. And when life here comes to a close, the wicked will face divine judgment and be blown away. But the righteous will stand firm in the Lord -- the Everlasting Foundation -- for eternity.
