Psalm 28 is a thankful response from David for God’s deliverance. I want to focus on the verses 6-9. What was David thankful for in these verses that we know to be absolutely true of God?
Praise the Lord!
For he has heard my cry for mercy. God is accessible, He hears our prayers.
7 The Lord is my strength and shield. God is our protector.
I trust him with all my heart. God is trustworthy.
He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.
I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. God gives us joy.
8 The Lord gives his people strength. God gives us strength to meet the day.
He is a safe fortress for his anointed king.
9 Save your people! God saves those who believe in Him.
Bless Israel, your special possession. God blesses.
Lead them like a shepherd, God is our good shepherd.
and carry them in your arms forever. God is eternal and saves us for eternity with Him.
For which of these attributes are you most thankful today? I had a friend tell me yesterday that when times are hard she focuses on her joy in the Lord. What about you? As you go through today, meditate on God’s goodness and blessings towards you, then take time to thank Him.
