Pin It Now!

For by you I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall. II Samuel 22:30

II Samuel 22nd chapter is titled David's Song of Praise and verse 1 is the introduction which goes: David sang to the Lord the words of this song when the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul.

Do we have a song of praise this morning? We have overcome hostile powers in our lives, have we not?! Then where is our song of praise? When was the last time we sang it?

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary elaborates the verse as below:
They that trust God in the way of duty, shall find him a present help in their greatest dangers: David did so. Remarkable preservations should be particularly mentioned in our praises....

Those who receive signal mercies from God, ought to give him the glory. In the day that God delivered David, he sang this song. While the mercy is fresh, and we are most affected with it, let the thank-offering be brought, to be kindled with the fire of that affection.

Here's the question in front of us as we start a new week:  If it is true that by God we have leaped over a wall, why then our praise is long over due?

What would be your excuse?
