Ready to Attack*

I love to read the psalms (songs) that David wrote. We know that David sinned, but he always turned back to God.
Often people did not like what David did for God. These people became David’s enemies. Our Bible Reading today tells us about these bad people. We can also read David’s prayer for protection and guidance.
Some bad people tried to kill David. He compared these people to lions who hide and are ready to attack. In 1 Peter 5:8, we read that the devil is compared to a lion. This verse says, “Control yourselves and be careful! The devil is your enemy and he goes around like a roaring lion looking for some person to eat.”
We know that these words are still true today. When people love and serve God, the devil is not happy. He will do all he can to stop Christians from serving God. But, just as God protected David, He will protect and take care of Christians, too.
Remember that God took care of David. He will take care of you, too.
