“Saved From My Enemies”

Blessings folk!

David called upon the Lord.
David declared that…
The Lord is my Rock.
The Lord is my Fortress.
The Lord is my Deliverer.
The Lord is my God.
The Lord is my Rock/Refuge.
The Lord is my Shield.
The Lord is my Salvation.
The Lord is my Stronghold.
The Lord is my Savior.
The Lord is my “Saver” from violence.

God delivered.
He saved David from enemies.

2 Sa 22:4
“I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised,
And I am saved from my enemies.

The Lord is worthy to be praised.

What was David’s situation/problem?

2 Sa 22:5-6
“For the waves of death encompassed me;
The torrents of destruction overwhelmed me;

The cords of Sheol surrounded me;
The snares of death confronted me.

Look at each phrase.
…wave of death encompassed me
…torrents of destruction overwhelmed me
…cords of Sheol surrounded me
…snares of death confronted me

Evil enemies sought to destroy David.
David was confronted and encompassed about by death.
Torrents of “Belial” - worthlessness, destruction, ruin, wickedness - overwhelmed…terrified him.
Cords of Sheol - the nether world - surrounded him.

David was in extreme danger.
He cried to the Lord.
The Lord answered.

The Lord will do the same for those who believe and call upon Him.


Fear not.
The Lord thy God is with thee!

Deu 31:6
Be strong and of a good courage,
fear not,
nor be afraid of them:
for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee;
he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
