This Psalm is believed to be written by David in his old age. In the Psalm he prays for rescue during his time of trouble and even though he was in trouble, he still praises God in verse 8. Like David, we need to praise God even when life is not going the way we like. Regardless of what happens, praising God reminds us of what He has done in the past and what He will do in the future.
Questions for further thought:
1. What suffering or trouble might you be going through at this time?
2. What has God done for you that could remind you of His faithfulness?
Challenge: Pray to God to thank Him for all that He has done and ask for His assistance in your current trouble.
