Today's Devotional

2 Samuel 22:7-20


7 In my distress I called upon the Lord;
   to my God I called.
From his temple he heard my voice,
   and my cry came to his ears.


8 Then the earth reeled and rocked;
   the foundations of the heavens trembled
   and quaked, because he was angry.
9 Smoke went up from his nostrils,
   and devouring fire from his mouth;
   glowing coals flamed forth from him.
10 He bowed the heavens, and came down;
   thick darkness was under his feet.
11 He rode on a cherub, and flew;
   he was seen upon the wings of the wind.
12 He made darkness around him a canopy,
   thick clouds, a gathering of water.
13 Out of the brightness before him
   coals of fire flamed forth.
14 The Lord thundered from heaven;
   the Most High uttered his voice.
15 He sent out arrows, and scattered them
   —lightning, and routed them.
16 Then the channels of the sea were seen,
   the foundations of the world were laid bare
at the rebuke of the Lord,
   at the blast of the breath of his nostrils.


17 He reached from on high, he took me,
   he drew me out of mighty waters.
18 He delivered me from my strong enemy,
   from those who hated me;
   for they were too mighty for me.
19 They came upon me in the day of my calamity,
   but the Lord was my stay.
20 He brought me out into a broad place;
   he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
