The Book of Psalms best articulates the heart of King David. David was a mighty warrior, a stealthy strategist, and a seasoned leader. He trusted God and with God’s lead, he led Israel to be the nation God called them to be. But, within his heart was a man that simply loved God! He could not help but write and sing songs of adoration to the God whom he loved. His faith and devotion to God had to have been contagious. Unlike Saul, David was never concerned with making a name for himself, instead, his desire was simply to honor and follow God. That is apparent in the psalms and songs from David’s heart. 2 Samuel 22 is one of the collections of David’s Greatest Hits album.
In the midst of life, we too must adore our God and Savior. Everything we are and have is a result of God’s kindness and mercy. It is easy to forget that our very lives and eternal future are a result of Christ’s death and resurrection. While we face a difficult world, we cling to the hope of eternity with God and in His presence. That is a reason to praise God and to cling to the hope of our salvation. Like David, we must never stop recognizing God’s hand in our daily deliverance; because we know that all that we are and all that we have come from Him.
God Bless You
“The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer;
3 my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield[a] and the horn[b] of my salvation.
He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior—
from violent people you save me.
4 “I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise,
and have been saved from my enemies.
5 The waves of death swirled about me;
the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.
6 The cords of the grave coiled around me;
the snares of death confronted me.
7 “In my distress I called to the Lord;
I called out to my God.
From his temple he heard my voice;
my cry came to his ears…
“He reached down from on high and took hold of me;
he drew me out of deep waters.
18 He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
from my foes, who were too strong for me.
19 They confronted me in the day of my disaster,
but the Lord was my support.
20 He brought me out into a spacious place;
he rescued me because he delighted in me.
