“Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man. “Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned. By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.”
David’s song of praise in 2 Samuel 22 is my spiritual bread for today.
Read the whole chapter and keep in mind all the battles, family uprising (Absalom), death of children, and personal struggles with sin that David had been through to this point.
This chapter, along with many of David’s Psalms, should make you jump for joy in your spirit if not physically.
God’s provision for our life is amazing. We will go through some struggles, that is guaranteed. Yet, God…
“You make your saving help my shield; your help has made me great. You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way.”
2 Samuel 22:36-37 NIV
Some boast in chariots and some in horses, But we will boast in the name of the Lord , our God.
Psalms 20:7 NASB
“Let all the earth fear the Lord ; Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.”
Psalms 33:8-9 NASB
