Psalm 18:16-18

Psalm 18:16-18

The introduction to Psalm 18 says that David “sang to the LORD the words of this song when the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul.”
 
Psalm 18:16 “He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters.”
 
[Our God is never too busy to stoop down and help any of His children; He pays close attention to each one and acts to help at the right time, especially as we fall into deep problems and trials. Here David was sinking in deep danger, he needed help right away and God answered.]
 
Psalm 18:17 “He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me.”
 
[You, Lord, are such a personal and powerful God; you reach down into time and history to save, protect and deliver us from the great power of our enemy, the devil, from his forces and his pawns. They are far too strong for us, but you are immensely more powerful than they are and have no problem overcoming their plans.
 
As Psalm 33:10,11 says, “He foils the plans of the nations and thwarts the purposes of the people. But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.”
 
In the midst of our difficulties, we can be certain that you, Lord Jesus, will act in the best way, at the best time, with the best means to sustain us and to give help in the right measure. Praise be to you for your faithfulness and goodness.]
 
Psalm 18:18 “They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the LORD was my support.”
 
[When all seems lost, when our demise seems certain, you, Lord come in and rescue. As it says in Psalm 46:5, “God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.” And so you did for Abraham, Joseph, Daniel and Jesus. So you will do with us, your beloved children. Praise be to you.]
