“Know the Source”
Psalm 38: 12-14: “Those who seek my life lay snares for me; and those who seek to injure me have threatened destruction, and they devise treachery all day long. But I, like a deaf man, do not hear; and I am like a dumb man who does not open his mouth. Yes, I am like a man who does not hear, and in whose mouth are no arguments.” Why did David suddenly make like Marcel Marceau when confronted with oppression from his enemies? Partly because he knew the lesson from yesterday’s MDR (remember, Solomon learned this stuff from his Papa) and partly because he knew that the Lord was just using his enemies to get his attention. The whole thing started with David’s sin (vv. 3-5). He knew that, so he accused neither God nor the instruments He used in bringing Davis back around.
