I love listening to my grandkids tell me a story about a fun adventure they had. They are so animated and they skip so many details in their rush to get to the good parts. Their hands are moving, their laughter interrupts the flow of their tale. It might be more fun to hear the story than to have lived it.
In today’s psalm, David is talking to God and telling tales of what God has done and what God will do. His confidence in God’s strength was earned first-hand. He had to move into the battle to see the victory take place. I tried reading the psalm out loud in an animated and excited way – and it worked! I wonder if this song would could be performed as a rap?
See you tomorrow for psalm 22
