The LORD’s unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him.

Psalm 32:10

David knew a lot about God’s love from personal experience and undoubtedly felt the warmth and protection of being surrounded (RSV ‘encompassed’) by it. He explained this feeling of 360-degree encompassed security in another psalm, You hem me in – behind and before (139:5). Isaiah expressed these same sentiments, the LORD will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear-guard (52:12). Total trust brings total security!
Each one of us can echo David’s words, ‘Happy is the person who trusts in him.’ (Ps.34:8)
