Saved From All Your Troubles

In everything he (David) did he had great success, because the LORD was with him. When Saul saw how successful he was, he was afraid of him. 1 Samuel: 18:14-15
On the outside David was successful. He had defeated Goliath and saved the Israelites from the Philistines. David had many successes in battle.
Why was David successful? He was successful because the LORD was with him. David’s success was not measured by his victories in battle. David’s success was not measured by his position as the new king. David’s success was not measured by his slaying of Goliath. David’s success came because of HIS fear and reverence for the LORD. HE worshipped God and trusted God with his whole heart.
David is called a man after God’s heart. David had success in spite of his great problems with King Saul. Saul wanted to kill David because he was a threat to Saul’s Kingdom and throne. King Saul was jealous of David. King Saul saw when the people boasted about David more than Saul. Saul was furious about the popularity of David. David had done nothing wrong yet King Saul wanted him dead.
How does your big problem compare to David’s? Here is a glimpse into the heart of David as he writes in Psalms 34.
 1 I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.
2 I will glory in the LORDlet the afflicted hear and rejoice.
3 Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt his name together.
 4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.
6 This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles.
7
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.
8 Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
9 Fear the LORD, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing.
10 The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
15 The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry;
16 but the face of the LORD is against those who do evil, to blot out their name from the earth.
17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
18
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
19 The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all;
20
he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.
 21 Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
22 The LORD will rescue his servants; no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.
