Song of Deliverance
Topic: AM Service Passage: 2 Samuel 22:1– 1:51
The end of 2 Samuel forms a kind of appendix to the history of David’s life and reign as king of Israel. We have seen David at his best and worst, at his most powerful and at his weakest. Through it all, we have seen the faithfulness of the Lord, who preserved David from the wrath of Saul, called David to account for his sins, and forgave and restored David. So, it is fitting that at the end of the book David offers up a “Song of Deliverance” (2 Samuel 22) to the Lord His God. David praises the Lord for delivering him from the hand of his enemies and describes the Lord in terms that show us His might and power. David reminds us that we are called to a life of following the Lord so that we may see His rescue. The humble hear the Lord and are glad (Psalm 32). Finally, David points us to the everlasting Kingdom of the Great King. We should never forget that the Lord has established His rule, and it shall never end.
