"He reached down from on high and took hold of me; He drew me out of deep waters.
He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because He delighted in me." Psalm 18:16&19

This was especially good to read this morning. Been reconnecting with old friends recently (which means being reminded of a different girl living a different life). This verse really highlighted how good God has been to me and what He took me out of and brought me into because HE DELIGHTS IN ME. I needed to be reminded of this. God chose me and rescued because He loves me. I'm His beloved and that will never change.


By the Way...i'm falling in love with the word of God more every day!

I also love this Psalm. I am a worrier by nature, but I have to say that sitting and reading these verses everyday has made me realize the truth to this Psalm. "The Lord is my rock, my fortress, my deliverer". It's true. Who am I to be worrying about things that I cannot control or that haven't happened? The worry is my lack of trust and faith, and reminding myself everyday to strive to be faithful has in turn helped me trust and feel more centered and content.

I'm right along with you June. I worry like crazy. I live thousands and thousands of miles away from any family or my good friends, and my husband is in the military and in a career field that is not the safest. I find myself worrying constantly about something happening to my husband, family, or friends. But I read a long time ago in a book that worrying is like taking the situation out of God's hands. Who am I to think that God, the creator of all, is not capable or the best equipped to handle my life? This verse reminds me over and over again that He is my stronghold and shelter. So simple, yet overwhelmingly powerful.

How can David write verses 20-24 in Psalm 18, especially considering his adultery with Bathsheba and murder of her husband?
