In Psalm 5:3, David portrays for us a poetic view of seeking God. He shows us three distinct truths we need to understand completely.
In the morning: David approached God before everything else. Communion with God should be at the forefront of our minds and not an afterthought. Each day, give God your best and the firstfruits of your heart.
David also knew his voice [would be] heard. He didn’t wonder if God would hear his prayers, but knew that God wanted to hear. David spoke boldly, because even when he didn’t know what to say, he knew God would hear him.
David didn’t just say a prayer and go about his business, but he wait[ed] expectantly. Too often we are guilty of giving God a list like we might give to Santa Claus–and then go about our business. David understood, as we should understand, that prayer is a two-way street. God wants to speak to us and guide us.
Approach God with boldness and expect an answer. Seek God and find great blessing in communing with Him.
