Beforehand Trust

Today's reading: Psalm 35:1-28

One of the reasons I enjoy the Psalms is because we get to see the candid manner in which the writers talk with God. That's exactly the case with David in Psalm 35. Holding back nothing, David pours out his heart, imploring God to deal with the people who are mistreating him and set on repaying his good deeds with evil. My favorite thing about this psalm is the "before the fact" trust in God David demonstrates. In his asking, he is already confident that God will act on his behalf.

When you ask God for help, to what extent is trust part of your equation? What did you learn or notice from David's example? Tami
