Everyone experiences anxiety, an ominous view of the future or FEAR (seeing Future Events As Real). We try to avoid it by minimizing it for substituting something to dull it. Neither works. David shows us that we should seek refuge in God.

Psalm 37

Access to information does not make us wiser. We need Godly wisdom to guide our lives. Written when he was older (v.25a), David shows us how that looks based on wisdom he gathered throughout his life.

Psalm 34

August 22, 2021

David had a remarkable calling to succeed Saul as king from a very humble beginning. (1 Samuel 16). Even early in life, through no consequence of sin, David was placed in situations that brought on extreme personal duress. Like him, we go to God asking for deliverance, depending, most of all, on His protection.
