One of the things that I appreciate about King David is how he consistently worshiped God truthfully – in the truth of who God was, and the truth about who he, himself, was. Recently, I was again reminded of how David related to God with raw honesty.
Near the beginning of the 40th Psalm, David rejoiced because God had put a new song in his mouth with which to praise Him (v. 3). Yet, that same Psalm ends with these words, “But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; You are my God, do not delay” (v.17). So, which was it David? Were you singing praise to a God who was near and dear, or were you crying out for help to a God you feared had forgotten you? Were you full of joy, or full of need?
The TRUTH is, David was all of the above…and perhaps all in one day. God already knows the reality of who and what you are – so worship Him wherever you find yourself. –Dave
