Rather than relying on his own wisdom and ability, David habitually consulted the Lord in all his endeavors.
David’s testimony reminds us that personal peace is not dictated by our circumstances, but by our choices. Consequently, people of faith—who choose to trust God—will not be shaken by what is happening around them or personally to them.
The king shall have joy in Your strength, O Lord;
And in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; may the name of the God of Jacob defend you; may He send you help from the sanctuary, and strengthen you out of Zion . . .
Although challenging, David’s life is proof that waiting on the Lord is the most courageous thing we can do.
