2 Samuel 22:47

The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation. 2 Samuel 22:47

Inspirational Thought
When God called David from his father’s sheepfold to anoint him king of Israel, He saw in him one to whom He could impart His Spirit. David was susceptible to the influence of the Holy Spirit, and the Lord in His providence trained him for His service, preparing him to carry out His purposes. Christ was the Master-builder of his character.

How joyfully David triumphs in God and his relation to Him. “Who is a rock save our God? ... The Lord liveth, and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation. He is my strength, my power. He is the source and foundation of all my blessings. He is to be as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. He is my strength, my support. He it is who keep me safe. In Him will I trust. I will submit my will to Him and will trust in His power, depending on His wisdom and goodness. He is worthy to be praised. To Him will I give thanks.

“The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to my cleanness in His eyesight; according to the cleanness of my hands hath He recompensed me. For I have kept the way of the Lord, and have not wickedly departed from God. For all His judgments were before me; as for His statues, I did not depart from them. I was also upright before Him, and have kept myself from mine iniquity. Therefore the Lord hath recompensed me according to my righteousness; according to my cleanness in His eyesight. With the merciful Thou wilt show Thyself merciful, and with the upright man Thou wilt show Thyself upright. With the pure Thou wilt show Thyself pure, and with the froward Thou wilt show Thyself unsavory. And the afflicted people Thou wilt save; but Thine eyes are upon the haughty, that Thou mayest bring them down. For Thou art my lamp, O Lord; and the Lord will lighten my darkness. For by Thee have I run through a troop, by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is tried; he is a buckler to all them that trust in Him.”
2 Samuel 22:47
