A psalm by David when he fled from his son Absalom. O Lord, look how my enemies have increased! Many are attacking me. Many are saying about me,“Even with God on his side,he won’t be victorious.”
But you, O Lord, are a shield that surrounds me.You are my glory. You hold my head high. I call aloud to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain. I lie down and sleep. I wake up again because the Lord continues to support me. (Psalm 3:1-5 GWT)
Even when King David fled for his life, his hope and trust were in God. His confidence was not in himself, his assurance was in God’s faithfulness.
