Bountiful Salvation, Joyful Praise

In Psalm 13, David sees two possible outcomes to his present distress: if God does not answer him, he will sleep the sleep of death, and David’s enemies will pridefully rejoice over him, a kind of false worship. If God does act, however, David will rejoice in God, and will sing praises to Him for His bountiful salvation. David has aligned his life with God’s glory, and pleads with God on that basis – David and God both want the same thing. As you worship this morning, learn from David’s example of what it means to pray in the will of God. Consider how bountifully God has dealt with you, and praise Him for it!
