We looked at Psalm 3 last Sunday because it bears on what we will look at this Lord's Day. In our study of 1 Samuel, we had arrived at the point where Saul will be taken away and the way paved for David to become king. Before this happens there is one more major trial for David to face.

This passage introduces us to the lifelong discipline David employed at the low points in his life.
