This morning, I read the comforting words of Psalm 57:2. David writes from a physical position of despair and distress, but from a spiritual position of victory and assurance of God’s faithfulness to Him. He’s in a cave. He’s fearing death as Saul pursues him. Yet he writes this:
I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills His purpose for me.
Trusting that God will fulfill His purpose for His people brings comfort during times of confusion or fear. As I think of so many friends fearing a hurricane on this day, I pray for them that God will assure them of His purposes for them. As David continued to hide, then flee, from attack, he writes this in Psalm 59:9:
O my Strength, I watch for you. You, God, are my fortress, my loving God. God will go before me. . .
What wonderful promises to remember today.
