Song Of Songs


2 Samuel 22:1-51

The Story

As we examine the journey of David's life, we discover that he had been a shepherd, a soldier, a sovereign, a singer and a sinner.

But now David is nearing the end of his life.

2 Samuel 21:15-17 tells us that David went out to battle and was almost killed by a Philistine giant. He was saved by his nephew and was forbidden to battle anymore.

The days of battle for David were over.

And the long days in the palace made David reflect back on his life.

As David remembered all that the Lord God had done for him, he took his pen and began to write the words of 2 Samuel 22.

Some said this was the last song written by David.

It is the song of his old age.

It is a song of joy, victory, and praise at the close of a race.

Lessons

David had written about his own walk with the Lord God.

Will we be found doing the same, praising God and worshiping Him in our old age?

Remember...

Many Christians had finished their race.

And many are nearing the end of their pilgrimage.

The apostle said "For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing." (2 Timothy 4:6-8)

Will we be found doing the same before we are called home?

Will we be found singing the song of songs?
