Fighting Words Friday: Relying on God

David writes this Psalm in the middle of serious angst. He wrote this when Saul had sent men to watch David’s house in order to kill him. He is surrounded and he is pleading with God earlier in the psalm for rescue and deliverance, but I love that these two verses are how he ends this prayer. Even in the midst of intense stress, David manages to sing praise to God, who is his strength. Maybe you’re in the same place today, feeling surrounded by trouble, overwhelmed or in over your head. So thankful that no matter what we face, we have a reason to sing praise to God. He is our strength and our refuge. Pour out your heart to Him. He is our God, “on whom we can rely.” Praying today that as I face all manner of trials and trouble and stress, that I will lean into and rely on the goodness and faithfulness of God.
