Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 3:1-8. This is a Psalm of David, which was written when he fled Jerusalem from his son, Absalom, who rebelled against him (See 2 Samuel 15). David wondered why there were so many people against him. Many people said that there was no help for David even from God.
But David trusted the LORD. He knew that God was his protector and his glory. David cried out to God and God heard and answered David’s prayer. David declared that he wouldn’t be afraid of all the people who were against him.
He calls out to God to arise and save him. God defended David against his enemy. David knew that his salvation came from the LORD. He took comfort in God’s promise that His blessing would be on His people. David completely trusted God to take care of him. Do you?
Daily Bible Reading:
1 [[A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.]] LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.
2 Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
3 But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
4 I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.
5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.
7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.
8 Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
Things to think about:
- From whom was David fleeing?
- Who defeated David’s enemies?
- Have you accepted the salvation of the LORD?

King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from the enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
