Daily Bible Reading “The LORD Defended David” (2 Samuel 22:11-20)


2 Samuel 22 The LORD Defended David Angel over JerusalemThe LORD Defended David

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from 2 Samuel 22:11-20. David declared that the LORD rode upon a cherub, and flew on the wings of the wind. The dark waters and thick clouds of the skies surrounded him in darkness.

Because of his brightness bolts of lightning were kindled and the LORD sent thunder from heaven. The voice of the Most High made his presence known.

He sent out arrows of lightning and scattered them; and confused them. The valleys of the sea appeared, and the foundations of the earth were discovered. The wind howled and the LORD rebuked them with the blast of breath from his nostrils.

The LORD sent from heaven, he took him; he drew him out of many waters; He delivered David from his enemy, and from those who hated him: because they overpowered him.

David said that the enemy attacked him when he was in distress, but the LORD came to his rescue. He lead David into a large place and rescued him from his enemy, because the LORD delighted in him.

Has there ever been a time in your life when you could say that the LORD came to your defense? If so, how did He make His presence known? In what ways did He protect you from the enemy?


Daily Bible Reading:

2 Samuel 22:11-20

11 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind.
12 And he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies.
13 Through the brightness before him were coals of fire kindled.
14 The LORD thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered his voice.
15 And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them.
16 And the channels of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuking of the LORD, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils.
17 He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters;
18 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me.
19 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.
20 He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me.


Things to think about:

  • Who came to David’s rescue during his time of trouble?
  • In what ways did the LORD attack the enemy?
  • How was David able to escape his enemies attack?


Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read this Scripture in 2 Samuel we see that You protected David from his enemies. Help us to know that You are our protector and our guide. You will keep the enemy from destroying us. Thank You for watching over us. Help us to seek Your leadership and guidance at all times. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
