Psalm 28 Bible Study
1. Always trust in God
David offered thanksgivings to God first in his prayer. This shows that he believes in what he pray for. It is important to believe and expect for the things you pray for. You must keep praying until you receive what you pray for. In Proverbs 3:5-6, trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. In 1 Thessalonians 5:18, in every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. In Ephesians 5:20, giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
