What Does 2 Samuel 22:3 Mean?

My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge; My savior, You save me from violence.

2 Samuel 22:3(NASB)

Verse Thoughts

David was singing to the Lord a joyful song of thanks and praise because the Lord had delivered him from the multiple enemies that were seeking his destruction. But probably the most outstanding things about this glorious song of deliverance is the personal pronoun that prefixes every attribute and characteristic of the Lord in which David is delighting.

David's song of joy proclaims the Lord is MY rock and MY shield, He is MY stronghold; MY refuge; MY Saviour and MY God. The Lord was not a distant deity but a precious and personal Champion in Whom David could take refuge - secure in the knowledge that God would save him from violence of the evil enemy.

And God wants each of His own of His children to rejoice in this wonderful truth - that we can all enjoy a personal and intimate relationship with Him, every day of our life.

Christ may be a Saviour Who is common to all believers and a God that is universal in His love for each of His own - but He does not divide His love, segment His peace or sub-divide His grace between us.

He pours out all of His love on each of us. His boundless grace is showered upon me personally - just as it is on each of His children. Let us rejoice as David did for His undivided attention; His undiminished love; His undiluted grace and His unending salvation.

My Prayer

Thank You Father for Your undivided attention; Your undiminished love; Your undiluted grace and Your everlasting salvation. Thank You that You my Lord and my God - my Saviour and my ALL in all, in Jesus name, AMEN.
