God Is For Me!

If God is for me, who can possibly be against me? (Romans 8:31)

David knew adversity. In fact, for over 10 years he was the object of Saul's hatred. Saul was the current King of Israel, but got wind that Samuel had anointed David as his successor. Knowing this fed Saul's anger, so he wanted David dead. But David was patient and followed the Lord's plan. When God finally delivered David from Saul's wrath, this is what he wrote:

Psalm 18:1-3; 25-29 "I love you, Lord; you are my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. I called on the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and he saved me from my enemies... To the faithful you show yourself faithful; to those with integrity you show integrity. To the pure you show yourself pure, but to the wicked you show yourself hostile. You rescue the humble, but you humiliate the proud. You light a lamp for me. The Lord, my God, lights up my darkness. In your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall."
