In Psalm 41, David rejoices in God’s friendship, even when his other close friends have betrayed him. Because David and God have a friendship built on things like integrity and care for the poor, David knows that God will not forsake him. Instead, God will deliver him and set him in His presence forever. David’s other friends delight in eating David’s bread; God delights in David’s godly character. Looking around this morning in worship, you will see in the people of God your true friends, friends who encourage you in godliness. You are also in the presence of your greatest friend, the God who delights in you, and who will always be gracious to you.
