Today's reading: Psalm 9:1-20
Psalm 9 is a proclamation of God's sovereignty and a praising of His righteousness. David praises God for how He governs with justice, highlighting that God is trustworthy and a refuge and stronghold for those who have chosen to follow Him. My favorite portion of this psalm is David's confident declaration found in verses 9-10:
"The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you."
Thank you, David, for the reminder of God's faithful protection and provision!
