Saul and his Army had been hunting David, yet he sang this Psalm to God, to remember God’s goodness
This Psalm is almost a duplicate of 2 Samuel 22, which reinforces that when we are surrounded by evil, the only sure way to be delivered, is to call out to God for help and strength
David cries out to God because he remembers Who his true saviour is.
It can be easy to forget in the heat of the moment, but God is with us, every moment, of every day, waiting for an invitation into our circumstances
God is our rock….our fortress…our hiding place…and our place of safety. Yet, we can momentarily forget about Him when stress, worry, or fear take over our lives
There have been times in my life when I have run straight into God’s arms, and He has strengthened me, there and then.
Other times, I have fallen to my knees, and the only words that I could sob were, ”help me.”
Then, looking back, there have been other times, or even seasons, when I have entirely forgotten to let God in through prayer, and I can now see the trail of devastation it left, even years after the events
I love God so much. He is my strength and my constant. He’s my Eternal Father who never changes, and thus, I want to encourage you this morning…
If you are in a situation where you feel alone (you’re not) – God will never leave you nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6)
If you feel like you have nowhere to turn (you do) – God will rescue you (Psalm 118:13)
If you can’t go on (you can) – God will strengthen you no matter how weak you feel (Isaiah 40:29)
