A Song of Praise!

Psalm 59 begins as David's cry to be rescued from his enemies. He asks the Lord to punish them because of their evil ways.

By the end of the psalm, however, David shifts his focus away from his enemies and towards God.

He remembers how God has protected him from danger in the past.

Thus he concludes this song of worship: "O my Strength, to you I sing praises, for you, O God, are my refuge, the God who shows me unfailing love" (59:17).

One thing I have learned through the years is that we are truly held by the Lord’s loving hands.  To know Jesus as our strength is one of the most assuring things that brings us comfort in trying times.

His unfailing love has upheld me time and time again.

Oh what a joy and privilege it is to praise Him at all times!
