“I will cry to God Most High, to God who accomplishes all things for me.” Psalm 57:2 (NASB)
Today’s passage comes from another Psalm written by David when he was hiding from King Saul in a cave in the wilderness. King Saul wanted to kill David because he was jealous of David’s popularity. David knew that God had plans for him. He could not forget that God had earlier sent the prophet Samuel to his home town to anoint him to be King of Israel. At the time he was anointed, David wasn’t much except the youngest of Jesse’s sons. So insignificant were his accomplishments that Jesse had forgotten him when Samuel had asked to see all of Jessy’s sons. Even now as he was hiding in a cave to save his life but he did not forget God’s plan for him. David knew God. He called Him the God Most High. David believed that God was able to carry out His plans so he trusted Him. God also has a purpose for each of our lives and He is big enough to carry out His plans. So, when we need His help, like David, let’s cry out to God Most High, to God who accomplishes all things for us just as He did for David.
