Read: Psalm 18

Key Verse:“The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.” - Psalm 18:4

Have you ever come close to dying? How has God rescued you? Car accidents, illnesses, near drowning are some of the times in my life when I was especially fortunate to survive. Life is a gift from the Lord! Jesus died so that we can live eternally. God also sustains us every minute of our time on earth.

King Saul tried to kill David on multiple occasions. The only explanation why David was not murdered is because God intervened. The hand of God directed Saul away from David in his vulnerability. God made sure Saul’s spears missed David’s head several times. God distracted Saul with other urgent assignments as he was closing in on David’s location. Pause and thank God that you are a survivor. Give praise to the One who has sustained you with His love and perseverance.
