David was a warrior with a poet’s heart.
He knew the majesty of God, and his greatest moments were spent declaring His praise. He had no patience for those who would defy the most high God, and his cry echoed his desire for God to be exalted.
“Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered.” (Psalm 68:1) This is still the need in our world, our country, and our hearts.
Arise, God, in my heart; take precedence over all that would challenge Your Lordship. Scatter the enemies called fear, depression, self-centeredness, and hate. Replace them with Your joy and grace. Strengthen Your work in my heart!
Psalm 68: 3 But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice. 4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name Jah, and rejoice before him. 5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation. 6 God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.
