He delivered me, because he delighted in me.

Psalm 18:19

Consider David

Consider David, one of the greatest of all Bible characters.  A man after God’s own heart, and yet he committed great sin.  But after experiencing the chastening hand of his loving, faithful God and being confronted by Nathan the prophet, he repents and experiences God’s forgiveness and cleansing.  2 Samuel 22 and Psalm 18 are almost identical chapters in the Bible, songs of David praising God for deliverance from his enemies and from Saul.  Psalm 18:19 says, “He delivered me, because he delighted in me.”  What an amazing thought that is!  He delights in me.
