ADDITIONS TO THIS SERIES! -I noticed in Psalms that David often shares attributes of God. I thought it might be helpful if I share what I find at the end of each chapter. Not only that but for this series in general, I’m going to try to make sure I add at least one praise song at the end and a sermon you can listen to that applies to something in today’s reading. Every song and sermon I post are ones that I have listened to and approve of.
I’ve been getting a little tired on my end so I took a little bit of break, but I’m back! I’m excited to continue the book of Psalms. We may have finished 2 Samuel, but we are just touching on some stories in 2 Samuel in Psalms!
What do you do when your family member turns a nation against you? How do you remain faithful to God against fear? This is where David was.
Today’s Reading: Psalms 3
Running From Absalom & Not Being Afraid
We will begin right in the heart of a story in which a father must flee from his son. I’ve talked about Absalom before. He was the brother who killed the rapist of Tamar. But if you want to start to learn of his story check out:
Post | Wanted For Murder: Absalom
Davids cries out about the many who are against him and how the number of people continues to increase against him. However, he is speedily ready to praise God.
He praises the Lord for listening to his cry. He knows that he can sleep at night and God will look over him. Even though there are tens of thousands against him, he will not be afraid.
God’s Attributes (Ch.3) :
- A shield
- Our glory
- Salvation belongs to God
- Protector while we sleep
What To Take Away: It’s difficult when people come against us, especially those who we thought we could trust. David lost a lot of people, but from reading 2 Samuel, we know he did have a lot of loyal friends as well. God will provide His body, His church, to be there for us. To help look out for us.
But even if we have no one, we do have Him. God does amazing things. He challenges our flesh to turn over to Him because it’s worth it, and it’s so much better. We do not have to understand the “whys” of everything. We just need to know that God’s way is better, and He is the only way we could ever get through the narrow path.
(NKJ) Psalm 3:03, “But You, O Lord, are a shield for me. My glory and the One who lifts up my head.”
