The Lord is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.
His anointed acknowledges God’s covenant with David. His promise that He would be David’s God and David would be His representative. This verse of Scripture became a heritage of the monarchy, a treasure for each godly king in the David line to go back for strength and encouragement.
All of us face challenges in life. If we are not struggling right now, we will likely face financial difficulties, illness, the death of those close to us, or pain in coming months.
God does not give us a pain-free life. However, if we seek after Him, God will be our strength. He will provide a way for us to face the challenges of life, large and small. And as He did for David, He will fill our hearts with joy in spite of the problems.
Heavenly Father, help us to trust You to be our strength.
