That expectation of love and forgiveness and help and restoration is what amazes me. Sure, we all know and expect God to be loving because we have been raised with the idea of a loving father in heaven. But for David this was a radical idea compared to the religions around him. And even though I’ve been raised to believe in a loving God, I still find myself forgetting to go to God, or even thinking he is against me, when I face troubles. I want to have a heart like Davids, and I suspect it comes from just regularly worshipping God with gratitude, and letting his presence change our hearts.
