1. Request from the right source - David turns to Jehovah and pours out his need.
2. Reject the wrong source - David realizes that in himself or in other men there is no hope.
3. Rely on the true source - Only Jehovah is the true source of help.
* true refuge v.5a, true portion v.5b, true strength v.6, true deliverer v.6,7.
God alone is the only place of true safety, God alone is my true desire, God alone gives me strength, and God alone is able to rescue me from despair.
Walk with the Lord and turn despair to delight!!!
