April 18 – Psalm 17, 35, 54, & 63

Below are my thoughts from the daily Bible reading of the West Side Church of Christ. Today’s reading comes from Psalm 17, 35, 54, & 63. Before reading I invite you to pray and asked God to speak to you as you read his word. Also above in the tabs is a link to the Bible reading plan.

David continues to teach us lessons on how to handle difficult situations in life. As a man on the run he has created a few enemies. We have seen just Nabal and Saul, but I am sure there have been a few others. With enemies growing how does David deal with them? Maybe he took action that the Bible simply does not record for us. But according to his writings he goes to God. He hand them over to God, and asks God to fight his battles.

Do you go to God and ask him to fight your battles? Maybe it is an over demanding boss at work. Maybe it is a parent of another child that is on your kid’s team that just grinds your gears. Maybe it is a relationship you have with a parent. Maybe it is changes taking place at your church. I do not know what your battles in life are right now but I know David was called a man after God’s own heart. I have to think that is because in almost everything he did, he sought God’s leadership in his life. We must do the same.
