2 samuel 22b the rest of the song

  1. 1. Gospel Baptist Tabernacle 781 Salem Road, Rossville, GA 30741 www.rossvillechurch.com Where the Love of God abounds, everyone is welcome. Children’s Church taught by Paul and Marsha Davis during preaching. October 20, 2013 1
  2. 2. 2 Samuel 22 is a song of praise. October 20, 2013 2
  3. 3. 2 Samuel 22:26 With the merciful Thou wilt shew Thyself merciful, and with the upright man Thou wilt shew Thyself upright. 27 With the pure Thou wilt shew Thyself pure; and with the froward (false) Thou wilt shew Thyself unsavory. 28 And the afflicted people Thou wilt save: but Thine eyes are upon the haughty, that Thou mayest bring them down. Whatever our need, God will be that unto us. Only the haughty will God bring down. Those too proud to repent and turn. 3
  4. 4. 29 For Thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness. It is only God Who brightens our life. He shows us the blessed road. 4
  5. 5. 30 For by Thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall. David knew that it was God alone who had given him victory. 5
  6. 6. 31 As for God, His Way is perfect; the Word of the LORD is tried: He is a buckler (shield; protector) to all them that trust in Him. Proverbs 16 25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. 6
  7. 7. If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, Do all things God’s Way. His Way is perfect. Do nothing which God says not to do. Do everything which God says to do. Be faithful. Your faithfulness depends on no one else. Do it for your own self. 7
  8. 8. We are not promised a trouble-free life. But we are promised deliverance. Psalm 34 19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. Him who? The righteous. You live for God with your whole heart, no matter what anyone else does. God will bless your life when you do as God says do. 8
  9. 9. Love and obey the Lord, and teach your children to do the same thing. Deuteronomy 6 5-7 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. 9
  10. 10. God says, “Go to church, worship, enjoy Christian fellowship, and encourage one another.” Hebrews 10 23-25 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting (call near; encourage) one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. 10
  11. 11. If God says, “Don’t.” then don’t. Don’t lie, cheat, steal, or kill. Don’t fornicate or commit adultery; love your mate. Don’t worship false gods: Money, stuff, illicit pleasures, power. If you want God’s best, seek God. Luke 11 10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 11
  12. 12. 32 For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a Rock, save our God? 33 God is my strength and power: and He maketh my way perfect (entire; integrity). 34 He maketh my feet like hinds' feet: and setteth me upon my high places. 35 He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms. Our Lord is the only True and Living God. He is One God – Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. 12
  13. 13. Our God is all that we need. We can be strong in the Power of His Might. He gives us the ability to do all that we need to do. God makes our way perfect, Meaning complete, fulfilling, satisfying. 13
  14. 14. 36 Thou hast also given me the shield of Thy Salvation: and Thy gentleness hath made me great. 37 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet did not slip. 38 I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them. 39 And I have consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not arise: yea, they are fallen under my feet. 40 For thou hast girded me with strength to battle: them that rose up against me hast thou subdued under me. Victory 14
  15. 15. 41 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me. 42 They looked, but there was none to save; even unto the LORD, but He answered them not. 43 Then did I beat them as small as the dust of the earth, I did stamp them as the mire of the street, and did spread them abroad. Total Victory ! 15
  16. 16. 44 Thou also hast delivered me from the strivings of my people, thou hast kept me to be head of the heathen: a people which I knew not shall serve me. 45 Strangers shall submit themselves unto me: as soon as they hear, they shall be obedient unto me. 46 Strangers shall fade away, and they shall be afraid out of their close places. God gave David what he needed. As king of Israel, he needed to be victorious over all his enemies. He needed to rule. 16
  17. 17. 47 The LORD liveth; and blessed be my Rock; and exalted be the God of the Rock of my salvation. 48 It is God that avengeth me, and that bringeth down the people under me, 49 And that bringeth me forth from mine enemies: Thou also hast lifted me up on high above them that rose up against me: Thou hast delivered me from the violent man. Romans 12 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. NIV 17
  18. 18. “As far as it depends on you” What you do depends on you. How you respond depends on you. Someone cusses you – you didn’t do that. But whether to cuss them back -- depends on you. 18
  19. 19. 50 Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto Thy Name. 51 He is the tower of salvation for His king: and sheweth mercy to His anointed, unto David, and to his seed for evermore. We must learn to really worship God Almighty: Worshipping Him for Who He is, And giving thanks for all He has done. 19
  20. 20. Just as He was for David, God will be all that we need in our own lives. Everyone who needs a Savior, God will save to the uttermost. Everyone who lacks the necessities, God will provide richly all things to enjoy. Everyone who is grieving, God will comfort. Just seek Almighty God with your whole heart. Hold nothing back; give yourself to Him. 20
