2023 Day 103 – 1 Samuel 18-20; Psalms 11,59
In the chapter we have as Psalm 59 are some of David’s writing about King Saul sending men out to watch David’s house in order to kill him. He describes this enemy and their plans of evil toward him. Mixed in with the descriptions of them are David’s prayer to God for help. His words show that no matter what happened, David knew that God was in control of everything. “But you, O LORD, laugh at them; you hold all the nations in derision.” (Psalms 59:8) He repeatedly calls out to his source of strength and protection. (Bolding for emphasis) “O my Strength, I will watch for you, for you, O God, are my fortress.” (Psalms 59:9) “But I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress.” (Psalms 59:16) “O my Strength, I will sing praises to you, for you, O God, are my fortress, the God who shows me steadfast love.” (Psalms 59:17) David’s source of strength and protection is the same one that is available for us today!
