As we continue to unpack this incredible song written by David early in his career and revisited in the closing days of his reign, we can see just how highly David regarded God. In his mind, there were no other gods. Sure, there were idols, but they were nothing – merely statues made with human hands and devoid of any power. But his God was different. His God was real and totally reliable. He was powerful and providential. And, in spite of God’s other-worldly, transcendent nature, David knew Him to be intimately involved in every aspect of his life. His God was involved. In fact, nothing of value David had ever accomplished in life had happened without God’s help. David was a God-made man, not a self-made one. His life had been given to him by God. His reign had been ordained by God. His position as king had been appointed by God. And he never forgot it.
