Although David had many life-long enemies who were out to get him, he also had many advocates. David was not yet the king but he was a well-followed leader and I have a feeling he had a special way of making those under his leadership know that they were all part of a big team. They worked together in awareness of God and gave Him the praise for His interactions that led to their good. And that is the way it should be today.
David sings out, “But give great joy to those who came to my defense. Let them continually say, ‘Great is the Lord, who delights in blessing his servant with peace!’ Then I will proclaim your justice, and I will praise you all day long.” What is it that we find ourselves continually saying? Do we praise God all day long, or just on Sunday as we offer up a song? Let’s make sure we are on God’s team and let’s be sure to come to the defense of others who wear His uniform too.
