“He reached down from heaven and rescued me; he drew me out of deep waters.”- 2 Samuel 22:17- that was the first verse that jumped out at me today while reading my Bible.
“He led me to a place of safety; he rescued me because he delights in me.”- 2 Samuel 22:20
This makes me think of being thrown a life preserver and being pulled to shore.
O(observation of this verse)- This was a part of the song David wrote after he was rescued from his enemies.
A(application of the verse)- I am not a king needed rescue from fighting battles like David but God does rescue me from things.
I love how it said he drew me out of deep waters.
How many times have I felt in over my head?
Or felt like I was drowning in my circumstances, my fears, …..?
Oceans by Hillsong United has been a life theme song lately for Jeremy and I. We listen to it over and over. Like when we go for our walks(individually- for a time of solitude) we listen to it repeatedly.
We want to experience God at deeper levels.
We want faith that will stand amidst the waves and deep waters.
