The Lord was David’s own by deliberate choice


  I say to the LORD, You are my God;
        give ear to the voice of my pleas for mercy, O LORD!
    O LORD, my Lord, the strength of my salvation,
        you have covered my head in the day of battle. —Psalm 140:6-7 ESV

Spurgeon, in the Treasury of David:

The Psalmist when hunted by man, addressed himself to God. Often the less we say to our foes, and the more we say to our best Friend the better it will fare with us: if we say anything, let it be said unto the Lord.

David rejoiced in the fact that he had already said that Jehovah was his God: he was content to have committed himself, he had no wish to draw back. The Lord was David’s own by deliberate choice, to which he again sets his seal with delight.
