Category: Life of David

Unshakable Faith (Psalm 16:7-9)

As he wrote this psalm, David’s life was focused on the Word of God. The godly principles he internalized not only provided guidance during waking hours, but also came to mind and actually instructed him between sleep cycles when he awakened at night.
