Trust in His Protection

David is on the run from his rebellious son Absalom as he writes Psalm 3. As verse 6 states, tens of thousands surrounded him but he had faith that God would protect him. It was as though God was right there with him making sure no one would do any harm to him. He even wrote as though God had already saved him.

Tracing the concept of deliverance in this Psalm, David is concerned about freedom from enemies during war. Many times, just living life can be like a war if facing an illness, paying off debt, or paying bills. That’s why the word “but” in verse 3 is so important because this day with God, hope will wash away every disappointment, joy will dissolve every sorrow, and God’s love through Christ will ease every burden.

This day with You God, we have confidence that the resources needed will be given. Your Word gives us poise under pressure. In stressful situations, we can come to You Lord and know we are really never alone. You are with us always to help us take on the daily challenges. Amen!
