In Psalm 69, David is sinking in deep mire, and he has more enemies than hairs on his head. What might come as a shock to us, however, is that this situation has arisen because he is passionate and unyielding in his insistence on the right worship of the true God alone. David is opposed and mocked because he is zealous for God’s house. The fact that he worships God is costing him friends, security, reputation, and peace of mind. And yet, even in his pain, David chooses to worship God in song, hopeful that his example will revive the hearts of those who seek God. As we come to worship today, let us embrace the reality that worship can be costly, and conduct ourselves accordingly.
