David's psalms provide a peak into his inner world, his theology, and how his theology shaped his worldview—his response to God, to people, and to the issues of life. He makes an assortment of faith-statements throughout his psalms that reveal what anchors his hope in the midst of turbulence. For example David declares "I have set the LORD always before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved (16:8). David operates out of a high and lofty view of God and that’s what balances him emotionally and spiritually.
David, through the psalms that he composes, teaches us how to process all of life through the lens of God's wisdom, sovereignty, and accessibility with honesty, transparency and thoughtfulness and he had never been to seminary! David shines a light for us who, like him, seek to walk with God by faith. Therefore, it is critical that we explore David's thoughts about God, about people, and about life by asking questions as we read his psalms.
David's psalms provide a wonderful templet for us as we seek to become authentic with God and with others in our own spiritual journey.
Who God is for David is who He is for the me.
