Confident Heart

today's reading.
Psalms 108    My heart is steadfast, O God! I will sing and make melody with all my being...

think about it.
How would you describe the tone of this psalm? What is the main reason David is praising God? What does God say about His position over the peoples (108:7-9)? When you face enemies or opposition, what do you expect from God?

the blog.
As we begin Psalm 108, David is pumped up about God and His unfailing love and faithfulness. I found his energy and enthusiasm contagious as they radiated out from his words. But it was the very first verse of Psalm 108, where David tells God that his heart is steadfast and confident in Him, that really impacted me. It caused me to think about my history with God and also do a little self-examining of my heart.

So what gives you confidence in God? Can you proclaim (like David) that your heart is confident in Him? Tami W.
