Has someone come up to you and said “Just embrace it!”?

David was left wondering for his life when his adversaries set themselves against him round about. Including his own son!

After crying to the Lord he said, ” I will not be afraid of the ten thousands of people who have set themselves against me round about”. (v6)

That’s a lot of people.

But guess how many angels were there on the scene around about those who were ’rounding about’ David!

And let’s not forget the glory shield round about David, embracing him!

But you O LORD are a shield about me, my glory and the One who lifts my head. (v3)

David did embrace the situation. But more than that, he embraced Him, who had brought deliverance before and would do so again.

He called upon the name of the Lord, slept, awoke, and was delivered!

It pays to be on the side of the LORD!

“Embrace it?”

Embrace Him!

The Chief among ten thousand.
