"David would praise God because he had many times, and all along, found Him his refuge in the day of trouble. He that is all this to us, is certainly worthy of our best affections, praises, and services. The trials of His people will end in joy and praise. When the night of affliction is over, they will sing of the Lord's power and mercy in the morning." (Matthew Henry) In the presence of his enemies, David was resolved to "sing" - to "sing aloud" unto God. He chose as the theme of His praise - God's "power" and "mercy." You are to do the same. When you are facing great trials or enemies, "sing of God's power" and His "mercy." It is HIs "power" by which He is able to help you. It is His "mercy" by which He is inclined to help you. Through both, God wants to turn your "day of trouble" into the "morning." This will all happen as you "wait" upon Him as your "Strength." Your "waiting" or watching will pass into singing. It's guaranteed to happen!
