David continues praising God today in our Psalms, tell us us Lord, you Rescued me from my enemies, saved me from my foes, put me above those who tried to bring me down and saved me from the violent throes of my adversaries.
Psa 18:47-48 the God who gave me vengeance and subdued peoples under me, who rescued me from my enemies; yes, you exalted me above those who rose against me; you delivered me from the man of violence.
So between 2 verses, David tells us in 3 different ways that there was some bad dudes after him, the stuff that nightmares are made of…but God was with David, as the word says “You Lord, delivered me from the man of violence” or God rescues David. These were the kinds of people that keep you awake at night, merchants of fear – but God saw David through. God also sees us through when we are going through hard times, in fact, it is when we are in the hard times that we are closest to and most dependent on God.
