Passage: 2 Samuel 22:21-37
Verse: 2 Samuel 22:28 (NIV)
You save the humble, but your eyes are on the haughty to bring them low.
Samuel was faithful in following the laws of the Lord. The Lord dealt with him according to his righteousness. The Lord also rewarded him for his faithfulness. We learn from this passage that the Lord will also deal with those that need to be humbled. May we find ourselves listed among the faithful. May we pray for those who may be humbled by the Lord. In addition, remember, the Lord is our rock; He is our strength.
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he causes me to stand on the heights.
He trains my hands for battle;
my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You make your saving help my shield;
your help has made[d] me great.
You provide a broad path for my feet,
so that my ankles do not give way.
May we always trust in the Lord, for He is our strength. (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
