Does it ever seem like Scripture was written just for you?

Today, in my online Bible reading, it was Psalm 57 verses 1-11.  Seems like God knows sometimes exactly what we need to hear.

Psalm 57

For the director of music. To the tune of “Do Not Destroy.” Of David. A miktam . When he had fled from Saul into the cave.

 

1 Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me,       
for in you my soul takes refuge.       
I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings       
until the disaster has passed. 

2 I cry out to God Most High,       
to God, who fulfills {his purpose} for me. 
3 He sends from heaven and saves me,       
rebuking those who hotly pursue me;       
Selah       

God sends his love and his faithfulness. 4 
I am in the midst of lions;       
I lie among ravenous beasts—       
men whose teeth are spears and arrows,       
whose tongues are sharp swords. 

5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;       
let your glory be over all the earth. 

6 They spread a net for my feet—       
I was bowed down in distress.       
They dug a pit in my path—       
but they have fallen into it themselves.       
Selah 

7 My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;       
I will sing and make music. 

8 Awake, my soul!        Awake, harp and lyre!       
I will awaken the dawn. 
9 I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations;       
I will sing of you among the peoples. 
10 For great is your love, reaching to the heavens;       
your faithfulness reaches to the skies. 
11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;       
let your glory be over all the earth.

Amen.
