Written after a narrow escape at the hands of a Philistine King, David tells us that praise is always the answer in the midst of trouble, because it opens our eyes to the spiritual realities all around us. He teaches us that natural fear is often our enemy, but the ‘fear of the Lord’ is always our friend. The fear of the Lord starts with our tongues and ends with the total surrender of our hearts. The question is … are you going to be faithfully fearful, or fearfully faithful?
