In Psalm 57:2, David declares who He worship and why he worships amidst great affliction and difficulty:
“I cry out to God Most High, to God who will fulfill his purpose for me.”
It is most assuring to know that God has a plan and will fulfill it. David is on the run from a ravenous King Saul. It would have been very tempting to view Saul as thwarting God’s plan to make David King of Israel.
Here’s an important question: How does the Lord often fulfill His purpose for us?
My devotional guide shares these important insights:
1. “Yes., God does “fulfill His purpose” for us.
2. He often uses other people to do so; but
3. They aren’t always the people we would choose to help us.”
It concludes that these are “important things to remember when you find yourself hiding out in a cave” (One Year Through the Psalms by William and Randy Petersen)
