The Steady Heart

Psalms 57:6-11 :

They have prepared a net for my steps.
My soul is bowed down.
They dig a pit before me.
They fall into the middle of it themselves.


My heart is steadfast, God.
My heart is steadfast.
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises.
Wake up, my glory! Wake up, lute and harp!
I will wake up the dawn.
I will give thanks to you, Lord, among the peoples.
I will sing praises to you among the nations.
For your great loving kindness reaches to the heavens,
and your truth to the skies.
Be exalted, God, above the heavens.
Let your glory be over all the earth.

This psalm tells us that although an enemy may set traps for us, they are unable to stop themselves from getting caught in them. They may think highly of themselves, but the truth is that they are very unstable. David said that his heart was "steadfast" even though he was being hunted down. We know from reading about Saul that he had become very unstable. His spirit was so disturbed that he had commissioned David in the past, to play songs to calm him down. One minute Saul seemed like a friend to David, and the next he was throwing spears at him. No matter how disturbed David was on the outside, God had given him stability in His heart.

David continues on to expresses his praise to God. This reminds me how important it is to not only have enough faith to expect God to help, but to also believe that God wants to help. David was still in that cave, but he began to call out for the lute and the harp and expressed his desire to praise God among the nations. He wanted the whole world to know how amazing God was, even though God had not saved him yet. That's the kind of faith that will help us be secure in hard times. When we are convinced that God is good and that He wants to help us, nothing on the outside can take the joy from our hearts.
