This psalm was written during a time of battle. David cries out for help and knows that God will help. The first verse reminds me of the prayers I would say as my kids grew up and began to live their lives outside of my reach. I would pray that God would protect them and help them when they are in trouble.
I have several friends and family members who have kids heading off to college, or getting married, or moving to a new location. Their worries are the same as mine were, but not all have faith to trust God with their kids. I want to tuck this verse in their hand, with the hope they will find it on the day they need it most.
We trust you Lord to watch over our kids.
See you tomorrow for Psalm 21
