I love David’s spirit in Psalm 52. Doeg the Edomite has just ratted him out to Saul. Doeg’s lying tongue was destructive like a razor and his words ate him up. You can read about in 1 Samuel 21, 22. It was a trying time in David’s life. Does he live like a victim? No! Listen to this.
But as for me,
What is a great response in trial.
Focusing on the lovingkindness of God.
(Verse one: “Why do you boast in evil, O mighty man? The lovingkindness of God endures all day long.” He could have focused on either one of those two things. He choose God.)
Waiting on God’s name.
Waiting with other believers.
Well, with that response he would be a green olive tree!
I love this so much! Thank you, David for this pattern to live by!
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
