We begin this new series of devotionals with Pastor John Samuel Barnett‘s series “David’s Life In The Psalms”.

Psalm 17 is presented as a prayer for when we feel insecure. That fact that David, in his time, had a prayer for these moments should at the very least encourage us that we haven’t gone far from the same type of shared experience. Insecurity seems like a normal occurrence in human history. The question is then, where will you turn during those times?

Will you seek outward towards the world and it’s offerings? Why search from answers in those that experience the same trepidation? Will you look inward? This assumes the answer lies within the frantic mindset of the one experiencing stress. Or will you look up, at the one who in supremely sovereign and who offers a relationship with the one who can hold you securely in His hands?
