“You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; Your gentleness has made me great. You enlarged my path under me; so my feet did not slip.” -2 Samuel 22:36-37
Y’all, chapter 22 of 2 Samuel has to be one of my most favorite passages in the Bible. I am strengthened and filled with joy just reading it, so I can’t even imagine the joy David felt when he was writing and singing this song.
So, today we’re going to make this more of a writing exercise than a devotional.
First, if you haven’t already, read 2 Samuel 22.
Second, using David’s song as an example, write your own song to praise God for His deliverance. Think back to yesterday, to the last week, the last year, and as far back as you can remember – where did the Lord rescue you from? What has He done for you? How did He show His gentleness and greatness in your life? Who is God to you? What characteristics of God strengthen you the most?
You don’t have to be a musician, a song writer, or frankly, even a writer to do this. Your words don’t have to rhyme. Just write from the heart – put on paper what the Lord means to you and what He has done for you.
