today's reading.

2 Samuel 22:1-25

2 Samuel 22:1-25think about it.
Most of David's enemies are now defeated and he celebrates with a psalm. How does David describe God? How does he describe his own condition over the years? What reasons does he give for God's favor (22:21-25)? How have you seen God rescue you?

David is praising the Lord in 2 Samuel 22:1-4. In his song David recognizes the Lord as his God, rock, deliverer, fortress, shield, stronghold, refuge and Savior. As I read these verses I asked myself What words would I use to describe the Lord? So I decided to fill in the blank to "The Lord is my _________."

Here's what I wrote. The Lord is my helper, strength and the one who understands every single unique thing about me and still totally loves me. Thank you, Lord!

Now it's your turn. Fill in the blank to "The Lord is my ______________." Some of your choices might be the same as David's, which is fine, or you may have others. Think about it for a couple of minutes and then write away! Tami W.
