October in the Psalms: A Song to Sing

In Psalm 59:16, David sits surrounded by men who seek to kill him. He’s a hunted and trapped man. Can you imagine the hopelessness and the fear? David tells God all about it, but then he writes, “But I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning.” I think about David actually singing a song. Did the men outside hear it? Did it pierce their hearts? I’m not a good singer, but today I consider the song I might sing to Jesus. Try it. Sing a little song. If we woke up this morning feeling hopeless and fearful, we can sing because of God’s strength and love which operate on our behalf today. Maybe October in the Psalms should involve daily singing as well!
