Today you should read: 2 Samuel 22

This amazing song has a ton of stuff we could talk about. This beautiful song of thanksgiving and worship (which becomes Psalm 18) is the ode of a man who is at the end of his life and has walked with God. The journey wasn’t perfect and he made some mistakes, a few big ones in fact. God however, is always faithful to take us back and forgive us. This passage is a bit lengthy so I won’t bog you down with more to read. Only this question to think on:

When you get to the end of your life and earthly journey with the Lord, what will your song be?

Will your song be one of victory and thankfulness or will it be one of regret and hopelessness for eternity to come? Walk with Jesus in such a way that your song will be a victory chant, not the blues.

  1. Great commentary today Robbie. Chapter 22 is so inspiring and makes me want to live my life completely surrendered to the Lord. All of us can relate to David on some level. I have also made some serious mistakes in my life that have brought great pain to my family and me. My faith, and the faith of my family, has grown tremendously as God taught us how HE longs to restore us when we turn our faces to HIM and HIM alone. Thank you God for separating our sin as far as the east is from the west and fully restoring our relationship with you through the blood of Jesus Christ.

  2. There are so many powerful truths in this chapter (v.31) “God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.” How often do I doubt God, or rather his ways, his faithfulness….? Probably more than I should.

    And I love the way this song ends (v.47) “The LORD lives! Praise to my Rock! May God, the Rock of my salvation, be exalted!” David had it right, the LORD does live – then, now and forever. That truth should cause all of us in the family of faith to be filled with joy and delight. It should cause us to sing like David did.

    My prayer today is that I will rest knowing God’s ways ARE perfect and that I will chose to live life in a way that sing praises to his name.
