David’s humility in Psalm 61 makes it easy to forget that this is the cry of a mighty king. Even the king knows that there is a higher rock of refuge than earthly power and authority, and so he longs to live under the shelter of God’s wings. His prayer for prolonged life is most gloriously answered in Jesus Christ, enthroned before God as the eternal king, ensuring the reign of steadfast love and faithfulness. Because God has been his strong tower, David promises to accompany the paying of his vows with praise. As you come to worship today in light of the comfort that God brings to your faint heart, join your obedience with joyful singing.
