Of David. When he pretended to be insane before Abimelek, who drove him away, and he left.
1 I will extol the Lord at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips.
2 I will glory in the Lord;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
3 Glorify the Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
6 This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.
God promises great blessings to his people, but many of these blessings require active participation. When you actively participate, you spend time with God daily, read his Word, listen to what his Word says to you, pray or talk with God, and praise him by singing to him and affirming who he is. He will set you free from your fears. He will guard and defend you. He will show you his goodness. He will supply for your needs. He will listen when you call to him. He will redeem you. Do your part by trust him, talk with him, take refuge in him, respect and honor him, do good, and serve God. Be active in your growing relationship with God. You will never regret it. You will be blessed indeed.
