David has a way with words. If you haven’t recently spent time in Psalms, take some time to dig into the book and you can find out for yourself how much David loved his God. It’s clear David had an amazing relationship with his Creator. What I love most about this relationship is, it wasn’t perfect – at least from David’s side. He sinned, he asked for forgiveness. He would walk straight and then stumble again. God continued to love him. What does that tell us about our own walk? Well, to me, it encourages me to continue to walk – even when I stumble – and ask God to pick me up, so I can take another step forward.

Psalm 21 is all about salvation and what a promise it is to have God on our side – providing that salvation.

His glory is great in Your salvation;
Honor and majesty You have placed upon him.
For You have made him most blessed forever;
You have made him exceedingly glad with Your presence.
For the king trusts in the LORD,
And through the mercy of the Most High he shall not be moved.

This particular image was captured while crossing from Mukilteo, WA., headed across Puget Sound. The fluffy cotton-like white clouds, with the sun beaming down while a storm rages off in the distance, reminded me of the salvation David speaks of. We are stuck on this planet, which most assuredly has plenty of sin and “storms” brewing around us. Salvation is the pure white clouds, floating in the clear blue sky – giving us the hope we need. Salvation will allow us to get off this planet and get us to the REAL home we are meant to live in.
