This is a podcast episode titled, Rejoicing In Our Resurrection | Prayer on Psalm 18. The summary for this episode is: This is a rare Psalm where David no longer feels any threats to his life. God has completely delivered him from all his enemies, including his most dangerous enemy in King Saul. The poetic images David uses in this Psalm are so illustrative in ascribing to God what ALL of us will joyfully want to say the moment of our resurrection, when we ourselves will be completely delivered from all our threats. This is a great Psalm for meditation and prayer in living into the bigger story God has for you! Let me lead you in doing that right now with this episode. Psalm 18 ESV  To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, the servant of the LORD, who addressed the words of this song to the LORD on the day when the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul. He said:  1 I love you, O LORD, my strength.  2 The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.  3 I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies. 16 He sent from on high, he took me; he drew me out of many waters.  17 He rescued me from my strong enemy and from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me. 19 He brought me out into a broad place; he rescued me, because he delighted in me. 29 For by you I can run against a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall.  30 This God—his way is perfect; the word of the LORD proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.  31 For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God? 34 He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.  35 You have given me the shield of your salvation, and your right hand supported me, and your gentleness made me great. 35 The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock, and exalted be the God of my salvation. 35 Great salvation he brings to his king, and shows steadfast love to his anointed, to David and his offspring forever.
