In the evening, David finds himself surrounded by savage dogs, and so he calls on God to wake up and protect him. The contrast in Psalm 59 couldn’t be greater: David is exhausted and overmatched, and needs to sleep. God is strong, however, and laughs at the howling threats of the wicked. Throughout the night, God watches over David, and delivers him, and David rises in the morning with a song on his lips: He sings praises to God his strength, who has been his fortress and his deliverer. David rises up in the strength of God, and spends his breath in worship. What better example could we ask for as we come to worship? Let us sing to the God who shows us steadfast love.
