Writing A Song (II Samuel 22, Galatians 2)

“And David spoke to the Lord the words of this song on the day when the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul,”  II Samuel 22:1

Can you imagine the stress that would be on you if you were asked to write a song (If you were not a song writer)?  This morning I found myself amazed at the song composed by David.  The Bible says, “David spoke to the Lord the words of this song…”

In this moment I was reminded of a theological fact: “All of scripture is ordained by God.”  Simply stated, “It was God who wrote the song and all David had to do was to write it down and sing it.”

Here is a summary of what David sang:

David’s song lifted up the praises of the God who saved him from his enemies, Vs: 4-16.

There were two enemies that led the pack.  The enemy of death and the enemy of distress.  God saved David from both of these enemies.

David’s song lifted up the praises of the God who brought him to a place of rest, Vs: 17-31.

David’s song lifted up the praises of the God who equipped him for battle, Vs: 32-49

David found strength and success in battle because of one thing:  “The presence of His God.”

Think it through:

1.  Has God saved you from your enemies?  Sing His praises!!!

2.  Has God brought you to a place of rest?  Sing His praises!!!

3.  Has God equipped you for battle?  Sing His praises!!!

Take it out for a spin:

Spend some time discovering what it means to be saved from your enemies.  Check out Galatians 2:20 where you will see the Christ who represented you before the Father, who redeemed you before the Father, and in whom reigns in your life.
