A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.
LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.
Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.
I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.
Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.
Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
… David felt like he was in the minority. There may have been as many as 10,000 soldiers surrounding him at this time. Not only did David’s enemies view life differently, they actively sought to harm him. David could have trusted his army to defeat his son Absalom. Instead, he depended upon God’s mercy. (3:4) therefore he was at peace with whatever outcome occurred, knowing that God’s great purpose would prevail.
… David was not sitting on his throne in a place of power, but he was running for his life from his rebellious son Absalom and a host of traitors. When circumstances go against us it is tempting to think that God also is against us. But David reminds us, God is still for us If circumstance has turn against you don’t blame God…seek Him!
