Praise

David’s life was bittersweet. He had good days. He had bad days. He did not complain. David’s last words were praise to God for all He had done in David’s life.

That is how I want to be. I don’t want to dwell on the things that didn’t happen. I want to praise Him for all He has done for me.

A great song has come out by the Greater Mount Calvary Choir. “He Could Have Let Me Drown.” It explains how Jesus found us in a sea of sin and shame, and He changed our name. He could have let us drown, but “instead He took me in.”

It is the truth. David knew this. In spite of all that happened in his life:

“The Spirit of the Lord spoke through me,

his word was on my tongue.” (2 Sam 23:2)

In spite of all the awful things that surrounds our lives, we need to keep in mind that our God could have let us drown. Instead He took us in. And if He took us in from the depth of sin, surely He will rescue us from whatever ails us today.

David knew God would bring salvation. (2 Sam 23:5) He spoke it in confidence as he was dying. Does your speech reflect that type of confidence in the Lord?
