118. He rescued me because He delighted in me (2 Samuel 22:20).
David not only is a man after God’s own heart, he is also one who understands God’s heart. God’s goodness toward David has shown him that God genuinely delights in those who trust Him. While many see God more clearly in His role of Judge, David sees God desiring relationship and engaging mankind with a genuine heart to do Him good. That’s the God David awoke to each morning. He’s the God who loves and David learned how to receive that love while also holding it as His treasured possession.
