“I praise God for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?” Psalms 56:4 NLT
David knew what it was to be afraid. He had many enemies who hunted him down and tried to kill him. Yet in the midst of this pressure and stress, he looked to God. He knew God was his refuge and strength. He knew God was a rock that he could rely on. He knew to keep praising in the midst of the storm. He knew his life was in the hands of the eternal God and King.
Lord thank You for the example of King David. In the midst of life’s storms he knew what it was to praise You and look to You. I pray I can draw strength and encouragement from this. When I am faced with the storms of life I pray that I will look to You too. Amen.
