No person in Scripture embodies the spirit of perseverance with such detail and imagery as those accounts of David that are offered in the Book of Psalms. When I am in need of spiritual endurance, Psalms is where I find comfort and renewed faith.
“Behold the man who did not set God as his helper. But he hoped in the multitude of his riches, and so he prevailed in his emptiness.”
But I, like a fruitful olive tree in the house of God, have hoped in the mercy of God unto eternity, and forever and ever.
I will confess to you forever, because you have accomplished it. And I will wait on your name, for it is good in the sight of your saints.
Psalm 51:9-11 CPDV
