Pulled Out of the Pit of Fear

For quite some time everything had been going so well for David as the hero giant-killer, the worship leader for the king, the king’s chief warrior, a member of the king’s cabinet, and the king’s son-in-law. But then everything unexpectedly fell apart! 

David had to flee for his life; his wife stayed behind with her father, King Saul; his parents were sent to Moab; his job, his standing, and his home were all lost; and when he fled to Gath he was captured by the Philistines. Consequently, David lost any remaining sense of personal safety and started to feel frantic!

As a believer, regardless of the extent of our spiritual maturity, it’s possible to reach a point so low we actually feel that everyone—even God—has abandoned us. That was David’s desperate condition when he wrote Psalm 13.
