Today’s FDR is Psalm 54
What I love about this Psalm is David’s response to persecution.
First he prays (v2), putting the situation before God as he sees it – being attacked by ‘arrogant foes’ and ‘ruthless people’ (v3)
Second, he recalls the character of God – helper, sustainer, faithful (v4-5)
Finally, he states what he will do… Praise the name of God and trust in him and his character (v6-7).
It is a helpful model for all of us when we are faced with uncertain circumstances, persecution, sickness and difficulty. Pray, remember God’s character, trust in him.
