Affirming God

Today's reading: Psalm 52:1-9

Psalm 52 is David's response to Saul's ordering, and Doeg's carrying out of, the slaying of Ahimelech and the priests at Nob because they had given provisions to David and his men (see 1 Samuel 21-22). I can only imagine the heavy heart David must have had knowing that it was his actions that led to this tragedy. Because David is on the run from Saul, he is powerless to take action. So in this time of grief and distress, he turns to God reaffirming his trust and dependence on Him.

How has God been your comfort and refuge in a time of grief or distress? What impact does focusing on God and declaring and affirming your trust in Him have when you're troubled, worried or distraught? Tami
