Our focus verses for today:
1 Truly my soul finds rest in God;
my salvation comes from him.
2 Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
(Psalm 62:1-2, NIV)
King David was a complex man who lived a very complicated life. He had enemies that wanted him dead. He had enemies because he was the King of Israel. He had family enemies because of his many marriages. David, like you and I, was a sinner. David had Uriah, one of his mighty men, a member of the 37, murdered to conceal David’s adulterous relationship with Uriah’s wife, Bathsheba. King David was a very complicated man. With all of David’s complexities, King David had focus which gave him understanding. King David knew that he was king at God’s mercy for as long as God would allow. King David knew that his wisdom and authority came from God. King David also knew he was a sinner. King David knew and acquiesced to the fact that God is in charge. King David knew God was in charge of all things, great and small. King David saw himself as God saw him. It is true that King David was a sinner like us. It is also true that King David saw God as his Redeemer and Deliverer. King David knew God.
