Despite the circumstances that challenged his hope and trust in God, David remained steadfast. When he sinned, he went to God. When he was victorious, he went to God. David’s enemies were defeated everytime David prayed and praised the Lord.
David knew who he can rely and trust upon. In his constant communion with God, David has reached the place where God’s will became his will and David’s heart wanted nothing more than to please his King.
We too can experience this. When Jesus becomes our Sovereign Lord, God places His kingdom within our hearts and as we follow Him, we experience peace, protection, provision and prosperity. David did not live in lack, so can we.
David submitted his life under the Lord’s reign; during good and bad, David gave glory where glory was due and God honored him. Do not fear to trust too much, hope too high or expect too much because David asked boldly and he received, so can we.
… I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.
