Have you ever heard "the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat?" Defeat hurts. In some things it's really minor and we should "grow up" and "get over it." But in big things it matters. But defeat isn't the only reality in life with God. There is victory. And when we allow God to give us the victory it is truly thrilling. David recounts one of those moments. As David remembered God's victory in his life so we may in ours as well.
