Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from 2 Samuel 22:1-10. David sang this song to the LORD the day the LORD delivered him from the hand of his enemies, and the hand of Saul.
David also talks about the LORD being our deliverer in Psalm 34:19 which says, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.”
He continues, “The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer. The God of my rock; in him will I trust. He is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, my refuge, my savior; you saved me from violence.”
I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so will I be saved from my enemies.
When the waves of death compassed me, the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.
The sorrows of hell surrounded me. The snares of death prevented me. In my distress I called on the LORD, and cried to my God: and he heard my voice from his temple.
Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations of heaven moved and shook, because he was angry.
Smoke came out of his nostrils, and the fire from his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
Judges 5:4-5 tells us, LORD, when thou wentest out of Seir, when thou marchedst out of the field of Edom, the earth trembled, and the heavens dropped, the clouds also dropped water. The mountains melted from before the LORD, even that Sinai from before the LORD God of Israel.
He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness was under his feet.
If you are a parent, how does it make you feel if someone is bothering your child? Can you imagine how it makes God feel when the enemy attacks one of his children? What do we learn about the LORD in this Scripture?
Daily Bible Reading:
2 Samuel 22:1-10
1 And David spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD had delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul:
2 And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;
3 The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.
4 I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
5 When the waves of death compassed me, the floods of ungodly men made me afraid;
6 The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death prevented me;
7 In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.
8 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations of heaven moved and shook, because he was wroth.
9 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
10 He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness was under his feet.
Things to think about:
- What does David declare the LORD to be? Why?
- How did the LORD respond to David’s cry?
- What evidence does the Scripture share of how the LORD felt?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this Scripture in 2 Samuel we see that David called You his rock. You were the stable one in his life. He loved You and he knew You loved him as well. Help us to stand firm with You as the rock in our lives. Protect us from the snares of the enemy. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
