Psalm 18 - The Demand for a Deliverer

Psalm 18 - The Demand for a Deliverer

We have positional holiness. David uses "righteousness" (Psa 18:24) as a picture of fellowship (Psa 86:2). David's righteousness has 3 witnesses (1Sa 26:23, 1Ki 14:8, 1Ki 11:4). God looks at our lives and desire of the heart - regardless of failure. We all fail but how we recover is paramount (Ecc 7:20, Psa 32:6). God gives strength for the way He wants us to go -- obedience (Psa 18:31-32). God gives stability (Psa 18:33-34) and increased impact (Psa 18:35-36). Only the eye of faith can see these things. David prays for victory (Psa 18:37-42). God takes the smallest instrument in nearest work in simplest way for the greatest victory (1Sa 17:47). God uses the weak and despised for His glory (Psa 18:43-45, Psa 113:7, Luk 1:53, Luk 3:5, 1Pe 5:5). David prays to his Deliverer (Psa 18:46-50). The Lord always is there to deliver (Heb 7:25). "Jesus" in New Testament is the name for "Deliverance" in the "Old Testament".
