2 Samuel | David’s Song Of Praise & Coming Of Christ?

There’s been war, famine, death, discord, and so much more wrapped up in the book of 2 Samuel. It’s a nice and refreshing break to listen to David praise the Lord. As I read the chapter, I was very much surprised to see how this held tones of the end of times.

Today’s Reading | 2 Samuel Ch. 22

Who Is The Lord To Us

David sings this song after he had been delivered from his enemies, including Saul.

From verse 2 and 3 alone, David proclaims what the Lord is.

  • My Rock
  • My Fortress
  • My Deliverer
  • My Shield
  • Horn Of Salvation
  • Savior

Wow! What an amazing comfort.

Verses 4-6 David expresses how he was surrounded by death and trial. Yet he cried out to the Lord and was heard.

Coming Of Christ Visual

Verses 8-16 very much have a tone of what the coming of Chrst will be like. The Lord is angry. He rides upon the clouds. The earth trembles and quakes from His anger. The earth grows dark at His coming. Brilliant light surrounds His presence as lightning bursts forth from it.

Rescued & Blameless

David describes how though this awesome and mighty power of the Lord is shown to the enemies, the Lord reaches down and rescues him from troubled waters because the Lord delights in him. He was surrounded by too many enemies and otherwise would have been overcome, but God rescued Him.

It is only through God we triumph! 

Verses 26-30 are a reminder that the Lord is gentle to the blameless, to those who are of the Lord. But God will be harsh to those who are not of Him. 

Verse 29, love this, “The Lord turns my darkness into light.” 

31-37 is a reminder that God is our only hope and strength. No one is like Him.

I love verses 34 and 37 because both talk about how God straightens our path, and how He makes our feet like deer, so we will not slip. I always find these scriptures so comforting.

  • He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights. (v. 34)
  • You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way. (v. 37)

38-46 continues to talk about how David was able to conquer through the Lord.

47-51 is a nice poetic wrap-up, circle back to the beginning of the song.

What To Take Away– The Lord is many things to us. The more we get to know Him the more comfort and strength we will see revealed in Him and Him alone. He provides and protects His anointed. Even if everything is surrounding us and we are not sure how we will get out, through Christ alone, HE is our reason, and HE is our “how”. He is our shelter in the storm. Our Deliverer and mighty Savior, indeed!

Comment Below:
Who is Christ to you? What does He provide?

Monthly Scripture – (NKJ) Isaiah 54:17, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,” says the Lord.

  1. Christ is my Salvation, my Redeemer, my Friend, my perfect Sacrifice, my Master, etc. He is my very life! 💜
    The characteristic I am most appreciative of right now is that He is my Provider.

  2. Today I rediscovered an audio cassette tape recording I made for my pastor in 1996 when he was diagnosed with Leukemia. I shared with him me singing some of my favorite songs (songs other people wrote) and how those songs ministered to my heart over many years. And, they were all about who God is and what he means to me, and they are about my relationship with him.

    One of them is called “You Gave Me Love,” and it is all about how God gave me love when no one else gave me a prayer. I first heard that one in 1981, probably, and I cried through the whole song, for it was talking about my life. And, another is called “When Pretty Things Get Broken,” and that one was all about how God picks up the broken pieces of our lives and puts them back together. Another was “The Part That You Wrote for Me,” and that is about accepting both good and bad in life and about seeking God to see what part he has for us to be.

    Anyway, all of these songs were talking about what the Lord means to me and how that makes me who I am, and they are about his love, his grace, his forgiveness, his healing, his comfort, his strengthening, his encouragement and him giving us another chance even when we have blown it big time. So, it was encouraging to me today to revisit those songs and to be reminded of God’s mercy and grace and love to me, and of all that he did in putting back together the broken pieces of my life, and then how he still chose me for his service, which is a credit to his love and grace, all glory to God!

    1. Amen, Sue!!! What a beautiful blessing! He speaks to us in so many ways, and some of the most special times I’ve had was when He showed me His love when I felt alone, misunderstood, or deserted. ❤ ❤ <#
