Psalm 18:16-19

Psalm 18:16 He reached down from a height and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep water.

Psalm 18:17 He rescued me from my fierce enemy and from those who hated me, because they were too strong for me.

Psalm 18:18 They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but Yahveh was my reinforcement.

Psalm 18:19 He brought me out to a roomy place; he rescued me because he treasured me.

What was the deep water that David found himself in? He had a fierce enemy, and a large group of those who hated him. They were too strong for him. They took advantage of his day of calamity and confronted him when he was most vulnerable.

But God reached down from his high place and pulled David out of the deep water. God rescued David, placing him in a roomy place.

It was not David’s praying that rescued him. It was not David’s worship that turned the situation to his advantage. God rescued David because God chose to treasure David.

Perhaps you are going through your day of calamity. Or maybe it is near. Remember God loves and treasures you. The deep water you are in is not evidence that God is indifferent to you.

Look up, because your rescuer is coming.
