Psalm 18: 16: “The Lord sent from on high, He took me; He drew me out of many waters.” We don’t have to assume that David had a narrow escape from drowning, as Jonah did. There is no such incident mentioned in either his writings or Samuel’s or Nathan’s. Sometimes we are threatened by the waters of man’s philosophy, humanism, and hedonism. We need deliverance from these waters just as much, or more, than from natural floodwaters. This is what is really happening in Revelation 12: 15-16. And such deliverance God is always faithful to give, to those who ask.
