A quick recap.
We have been examining a song of David found in 2 Samuel 22/Psalm 18.
To this point we have seen…
God was/is David’s and our…
- Horn of Salvation
- High Tower
David called/cried unto the Lord…
- when waves of death compassed him
- floods of ungodly men made him afraid
- sorrows of hell compassed about him
- snares of death prevented him
David, in distress…
- praised the Lord
- called upon the Lord
- cried out unto the Lord
We saw God’s response…
- heard David’s voice
- earth shook
- foundations of heaven trembled
- God was wroth
- smoke out His nostrils
- fire out of His mouth
- He bowed the heavens and came down
- Darkness under His feet
- He rode upon a cherub and did fly
- He was seen on the wings of the wind
- Lord thundered from heaven
- Most High uttered His voice
- Sent arrows and scattered the enemy
- Sent lightning and discomfited them
- Channels of the sea appeared
- foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuking of the Lord
- He sent from above and took David
- He drew David out of many waters
- He delivered David from his strong enemies and from those who hated him...an enemy too strong
- He was David’s stay
- He brought David into a large place
- He delivered David…
All this we have seen.
Do you believe that the Lord will do the same for you?
Do you believe that the Lord will literally move and shake creation?
All this leads to one amazing phrase in the Word.
Why did God do all this for David?
David tells us.
2 Samuel 22
20 He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
The Lord did all this because He delighted in David.
It was nothing that David did to earn.
The Lord delighted in Him
It was not negated because of the sin in David’s life.
Yes. David had sin grievously, yet he sought and received forgiveness.
The Lord delighted in Him.
Later we will see what effect this had in David’s life.
It is something that is absolutely needed within the Body today…
As for today, receive and rejoice in this one truth.
The Lord delights in you!
If you are a Believer He really, really delights in you.
17 The LORD your God is among you,
a warrior who saves.
He will rejoice over you with gladness.
He will bring [you] quietness with His love.
He will delight in you with shouts of joy."
If you are not a Believer, He is calling and desire for you to be restored to Him… the chains of sin and death to be broken. How?
1 Corinthians 6
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,
10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.
11 Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
Call upon the name of the Lord and be saved.
And watch what the Lord will do.
Pray today especially for:
Spradlin family: home-going of Mary Nell...a God-fearing saint who was/is the model of the spirit-filled life
Waters and Hodge family in the home-going of matriarchs.
Pray also for these… http://www.dalemoore.tv/page9/page9.html
We are beginning a new Bible study series and course this week.
The “Kings and Prophets” series consists of 10 courses where we will examine the Kings and Prophets in the Old Testament.
The first course is “A Divided Heart/A Divided Nation”. We will start on the homework this week, covering lesson one for class time next week.
If you are local, join us in class.
If you are distant or can not come to class, join us online.
We have more than 140+ folk participating online in some form or fashion.
Some have procured the workbook and are studying along with us.
Others are lurking and learning.
Each week a quick (under 10 minutes) video synopsis of the lesson is provided.
