    I am so glad that we serve a God that we can depend on and be with us in our time of troubles I love the book of Psalms I am so glad that God loves me

    The events taking place thus moving David by the Spirit to write this Psalm seem obscure to us, until we consider them with the view of David's purpose of God to win for Israel ALL its promised land, even to the Euphrates River. This tremendous feat was not however followed up worthily by the sons of Israel, for they never established their Borders according to the Victories David got for them.

    Dear BSP; I have to tell you, that even these kinds of Scriptures are still mightily filled with the Spirit of God, and written of Divine purpose; not merely David's feelings (as you suppose) as if he was discouraged. Look at the world around us! What do you see? Do you see as I do, that the restraint is being taken away? Why do you think that is? Because God sees no integrity or truth in people!

    Verse 1: David was busy fighting the Syrians and while this was taking place the Edomites decided they would attack. David felt that God had left him. We can feel the same way when we face multiple problems that seem to overwhelm us. This account can help us to see that Jehovah God never leaves his loyal servants even when they face trials.

    Jesus said upon this rock meaning the truth I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it... And that's the unadulterated truth.

    David is trying to be saved from his enemies
