When I feel troubled, nervous, or confused about a path forward, I remember David hiding in the cave when Saul tried to murder him. Can you imagine? Think of the fear. Think of the desperation in David’s heart. Think of the discomfort and the sorrow.
From his cave, he writes this in Psalm 57:
Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me, for in you my soul takes refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed. I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills his purpose for me. He sends from heaven and saves me. . . God sends his love and his faithfulness.Psalm 57:1-3
This morning, we take refuge in God. We cry out to God. We can affirm that He knows His purpose for us. We thank Him for His saving love and faithfulness.
