Readings: II Samuel 22-23, Psalm 145, I Corinthians 11
II Samuel 22: I sometimes forget how dangerous it must have been for David when Saul chased him around Israel for years. Here, David records a song he wrote about God once he had been delivered from Saul’s hand. He describes his experience fleeing from Saul as “waves of death” swirling around him, “torrents of destruction” overwhelming him, and the “cords of the grave coiled around” him. I often wonder how he maintained his faith in God when he prayed to God night after night, and God seemingly did not answer. Again, timing is key. David survived and became king.
