God not only is the protector and sustainer of our lives, but David ends the Psalm stating that salvation belongs to the Lord. Yes, David was thinking of salvation for his current and immediate predicament. However, the scripture’s timeless truth applies to the greatest enemy for all believers, our own sinful nature and our captivity to the chains of darkness. While we face the greatest of temptations and the sins that surround, stalk, torment us, we experience the great salvation of God. For Christ has struck down our enemy on his pierced back, nail scarred hands and feet, and took our iniquities upon Himself. It is Jesus Christ in whom we have salvation, and that is the greatest comfort, hope, and treasure no matter how bleak our situation is. Praise God for his wonderful blessings on His people: Himself to a lost and dying world.
