Psalm 57:1-3 (JDV)


Psalm 57:1 Be gracious to me, God, be gracious to me, for I take refuge in you. I will seek refuge in the shadow of your wings until danger passes.
Psalm 57:2 I call to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me.
Psalm 57:3 He reaches down from the sky and saves me, challenging the one who tramples me. Selah God sends his covenant faithfulness and truth.


David’s man-cave was an actual cave, but he didn’t hide in it for his entertainment. He was seeking refuge from the king, who wanted him dead. As he does so, it just so happens that king Saul himself would enter that cave. David learned that a man-cave is not deep enough to hide from your troubles, because they will find you there. But he also learned that God can be your refuge no matter where you are.

Lord, be our refuge. We will rest in your shadow.
