Some of my most favorite things about King David was his vulnerability, realness, faithfulness, bravery, boldness, and his willingness to be who God created him to be. When he wrote Psalms, he wrote it from the depths of his heart with pure intent. David was real….David felt so much love for God, even though his life was not perfect.
Psalm 23 (NIV)
1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
~David was a winner because he trusted God at all times and in all situations. Even though he walked through the darkest valley, he had no fear because God was always with him.
~God does not promise that you won’t walk through deep, dark valleys, but he does promise that he will always be with you.
