150 Days of Psalms: Psalm 3

You can read Psalm 3 here.

This Psalm was written by David as he fled from Absalom.  How much does it suck for him to have fear of his child?  It would be a terrible thing to have a child so greedy that they chose to kill you.  Poor David has never had it easy.

But what does he do when he is distraught?  He calls out to God.  God, he knows, is his protector.  No matter how many times that David failed God never did.  His heart was focused on God and God delivered him again and again.

It's a beautiful thing to be able to cry out to the Lord.  We call out to him and he gives comfort.
