As he was running from Absalom, David composed Psalm 3. Psalm 3 reveals David’s deep confidence in God’s protection and deliverance. Underlying David’s confidence in God’s protection and deliverance was his confidence that God had really forgiven him and restored him. In the opening verses David describes his situation, but without complaint. He accepts the fact he is suffering the consequences of his sin. The natural mind reasons that if you are suffering the consequences of your sin, God is still angry with you; He hasn’t forgiven you. But David knows he’s been forgiven and reconciled to God. He has incredible peace in the midst.
