II Samuel 22: 18-20 ” He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because He delighted in me.”

These verses come from a Song of Praise David sang to the Lord  after God had delivered him from the hand of all his enemies.  Out of David’s heart came thanksgiving for God’s steadfastness…even in the face of calamity.  And the deep-seated trust David had in God is not only evident here, but elsewhere when he declared, “I will fear no evil, for You are with me.” (Psalm 23:4)  David was able to turn fear into faith by keeping his eyes on God and not his situation.
