As King of a nation, David had his share of foes. Perhaps he felt as if he were always on guard against his enemies. As a response, David wrote prayers in the form of songs, we call them Psalms.
As we read through David’s prayers we see him declaring truth, declaring his assurance of God’s love and faithfulness, declaring the majesty of God.
David was a man who made some grave mistakes. He experienced death, disloyalty, family dysfunction, being wrongfully accused, rejection. Yet in the midst of his trials, he penned the most beautiful declarations of God’s love.
What are you experiencing today? Sickness, loss of a job or the threat of losing your job. Are you worried that your marriage is falling apart or has the divorce begun? Is there family dysfunction? Are your finances in disarray? Whatever is your “foe” like David, begin to meditate on God’s love. His perfect love for you will cast out ALL FEAR.
When David’s enemies were attacking him, his response was: “But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.” Psalm 86:15 NIV
Let that be our response to whatever we are facing today.
