The Upward Look

“Know that the LORD has set apart the faithful for Himself; the LORD will hear when I call to Him.” Psalm 4:3 HCSB
In his distress David is reminded that God is the Sovereign Lord and that He watches over those who are faithful to Him. God demanded that His people be faithfully obedient to His commands. David’s adversaries had rebelled, turned away from God, and pursued worthless lies while David had remained faithful. Therefore God heard and answered David’s prayer for help. God delivered David from his enemies so that he would continue to accomplish His work.
Lord Jesus, I am thankful that You watch over Your people. Help me to be obedient in living faithfully to You and Your Word.
