THIS WAS KING DAVID’S SONG OF THANKSGIVING
FOR DIVINE RESCUE FROM A VASTLY SUPERIOR FOE
IT IS ALSO YOUR SONG FOR DIVINE RESCUE
IN YOUR GETHSEMANI
IN YOUR HOUR OF DARKNESS
RESCURE FROM INSURMOUNTABLE CRISES
AND UNBEARABLE PAINS
 
KING DAVID WAS RESCUED FROM HIS SIN
OF STEALING THE WIFE OF HIS WARRIOR.
HIS CRISIS CLEANSED HIM
TO BECOME THE MOST REVERED KING FOR GOD
THUS THE GOSPELS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT
TRACE THE LINEAGE OF JESUS TO DAVID

 

song of david

 

i love you Lord my strength
my rock my fortress my deliverer
my God my refuge
my shield my saving horn my stronghold
praise be to You
Who has delivered me from my enemies

 

death was all around me
torrential floods inundating me
the noose of Sehol tightening
the snares of death awaited me in ambush
in my distress i cried out to the Lord
and from His celestial abode He heard my plea

 

the earth trembled
cracking the foundations of mountains
His wrath ignited
smoke billowing from His breath
kindling coals into flame
He then parted the heavens

 

descending
with a dark cloud under His feet
flying atop cherubs
borne by the wings of the wind
the surrounding darkness veiled His majesty
a canopy of violent thunder proclaimed His coming

 

clouds and hail and lightning
were all around Him
the Lord thundered from the heavens
His voice echoing
His arrows and lightning bolts flew
dispersing my enemy

 

the sea floor surfaced
the world’s foundation was laid bare
at the roar of the Lord
His breath like a storm
He reached down from the skies
and cradled me

 

He drew me out of the deep waters
and rescued me from my mighty foes
too strong for my sword
they attacked on a day of distress
but the Lord came to my aid
and set me free

 

He rescued me because He loves me

 

psalm 18:1-20

luke 2:13-14

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
on that day
a shoot shall sprout
from the stump of jesse
and from his roots
a bud shall blossom

 

the earth shall be filled
with the wisdom of the Lord
as waters cover the sea
on that day all shall seek out
the root of jesse

 

the sign to all nations
that the Lord reclaims His people

 

isaiah 11:1, 9-10
