In Psalm 57, David is hiding in a cave from the madness of King Saul, and he uses his time to compose a psalm of praise to God. In it, he calls upon the mercy of God, and reminds God of the serious danger he is in. But the eyes of worship can see into the future, and so David starts to exalt the name of God for the mighty deliverance that is still to come. The steadfast love of God has created a steadfast heart in David, and so the cave echoes with the sounds of David’s thankful melody. So as you come to worship today, remember the character and promises of God, and rejoice in your future: God will send from heaven and complete your salvation.
