Seems like COVID-19 has taken a liking to planet Earth and is not going anywhere anytime soon😤. Since this pandemic, I have gotten a lot busier😵 or maybe to better suit a lot more distracted🤫 and sulking over the fact that pretty much all my plans have been ruined😩😭. Furthermore, there has been more chaos around the world on top of coronavirus, I mean give us a break 2020😪. I think I can speak for the majority when I say COVID-19 we are sick and tired of you and its time for you to pack your bags and leave! 👉🏾💼 👋🏾
Okay, before I get carried away ranting😝, the purpose of this post was to encourage somebody today. During this week as I was doing my usual sulking, I was reminded by the book of 2nd Samuel that our trust is in God. David sang a song to the Lord when he was given victory over his enemies and it was a song that expressed his faith and trust in God.
“Then David spoke to the Lord the words of this song, on the day when the Lord had delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul. And he said: “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; The God of my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, My stronghold and my refuge; My Savior, You save me from violence.” (2 Samuel 22:1-3, NKJV).
This passage encouraged me to have faith in God and that even during this pandemic the Lord is our ROCK, our FORTRESS and our SAVIOUR, He will deliver us🙏🏾✨. Moreover, God will continue to strengthen us and protect us in this time as His children.
Today instead of focusing on how COVID-19 has ruined our lives lets sing this song of David and already declare our victory because our faith and trust is in God.
NOTE: you can read the whole of 2 Samuel 22 but it was rather long to add all at once so here are some verses that inspired me.
Praise for God’s Deliverance
“Then David spoke to the LORD the words of this song, on the day when the LORD had delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul. And he said:
“The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
The God of my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation,
My stronghold and my refuge;
My Savior, You save me from violence.” (2 Samuel 22:1-3, NKJV)
“In my distress I called upon the LORD,
And cried out to my God;
He heard my voice from His temple,
And my cry entered His ears.” (2 Samuel 22:7, NKJV)
““He sent from above, He took me,
He drew me out of many waters.” (2 Samuel 22:17, NKJV)
“He also brought me out into a broad place;
He delivered me because He delighted in me.” (2 Samuel 22:20, NKJV)
“For You are my lamp, O LORD;
The LORD shall enlighten my darkness.
For by You I can run against a troop;
By my God I can leap over a wall.
As for God, His way is perfect;
The word of the LORD is proven;
He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
“For who is God, except the LORD?
And who is a rock, except our God?
God is my strength and power,
And He makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of deer,
And sets me on my high places. ” (2 Samuel 22:29-34, NKJV)
I don’t know what you are going through during this pandemic but I hope this encourages you to trust in the Lord God who is your rock, fortress and saviour.
Stay blessed the most stylish way possible, being the you that God made you to be 😊
