II Sam. 22:31-33 “As for God, his way is perfect. All the LORD’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. For who is God except the LORD? Who but our God is a solid rock? God is my strong fortress, he has made my way safe.”
King David was singing forth God’s praises. He was declaring his allegiance and adoration to Him. He was recalling the greatness and faithfulness of God to him. It is a good thing for us to always reflect on the goodness and greatness of God. It is good for us to often praise Him.
There are a lot things we can praise the Lord for, regardless of life’s circumstances. We praise Him for His way is perfect. There is no flaw whatsoever in the way that God acts amongst men. He always knows what He is doing. He always knows what needs to be done and how to do it. His ways are always the best way.
We praise the Lord because all of His promises are true. All means all. There is not one promise that God has ever made to man that has been proven to be false. God will never let you down; He will always do what He says He will do.
We praise the Lord for He shields all those who allow Him to be their protector. There is no fear of being overpowered by Satan when we live in God’s protective care. Satan cannot penetrate the protective shield of our Lord.
We praise God for He is our Lord. He is ruler over all that is. He is in control. He determines the way things go in all of creation. There is none beside Him.
We praise Him for He is our solid rock. There is no sinking under the weight of living when Jesus is our Lord. He is the only dependable foundation upon which life can be built.
We praise Him for He is our might fortress. There is safety in the Lord. When we live in Christ there is no power that can keep us away from God or hinder us from making it to heaven.
Sing forth God’s praises! Regardless of what life may be like for you, praise the Lord your God. Recall God’s greatness and goodness. Consider His amazing grace and your amazing salvation. Consider the hope that we have in Him. Look to Jesus our Lord and praise His holy name.
