Among the most revered of the Psalms is Psalm 18. Its lyrical marvel, brimming with magnificent language that desirous of one thing: God’s glory. As King David reflects on his life and the many deliverances throughout which came at his God’s hand, he’s inspired to pen this wondrous psalm. But David’s song of deliverance is our song too.
The life we live is often confusing, befuddling, and perplexing. Events happen out of our control. Circumstances arise that affect us at a soul level. At times, it feels like chaos is going to win. Of anyone who’s ever live who has felt this the most acutely, the psalmist David ranks high on that list. And in Psalm 73, he utters a most honest confession for the Lord to preserve him from life’s confusion.
