Today's reading: Psalm 57:1-11
Even though David is being hunted by Saul and his men, his trust in God remains strong. So as he begins Psalm 57, David's tone is confident. I love how he declares to God that he is claiming Him as his refuge until the terrible circumstances around him subside.
"Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, for in you my soul takes refuge; in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, till the storms of destruction pass by" (vs. 1).
When and how has God been your "refuge till the storms of destruction have passed you by”? Why is it important to praise God in and through the storms? When you tell God exactly what it is that you are going to do, how does it impact your attitude and actions? Tami Tami
