I would say that what David was expressing in this verse was both the utter safety of the protection that God was providing to him, and also the bold manner in which God was providing that protection -- to such a degree that it was being manifested and made obvious to David's enemies just as clearly as if God had prepared a feast for David in the immediate view of those who were seeking David's harm, with those foes being completely powerless to do anything to disrupt it. This emphasizes God's complete power and control over the entire situation.
