Personal Protector

Today's reading: Psalm 140:1-13

What do you do when you find yourself in a bad situation? Is your first instinct to call out to God or rely on your own thinking and strength? I've certainly done both, and I can absolutely say that the best course of action is to ALWAYS look to God first. David knew this well and that's exactly what we see in Psalm 140. David is calling out to God to protect and deliver him because his adversaries and enemies are many and he is in distress. David's words give us a beautiful picture of an all-powerful God who is, at the same time, also absolutely personal.

What does knowing that God is "your" God mean to you? What did you learn from David's words about trusting God? Tami
