In 2 Samuel 22:29-31, we read, “For You are my lamp, O LORD, and my God lightens my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall. This God — His way is perfect; the word of the LORD proves true; He is a shield for all those who take refuge in Him.” As David’s final hours drew near, these words capture His testimony regarding the Lord’s faithfulness. So many people had either abandoned or failed David over the course of His life, yet God — his God — was faithful. What a testimony! “The word of the LORD proves true.” How many of us can say this about the words of others?

What a blessing it is to possess this testimony? 2 Samuel 22 recounts the many wondrous deeds of the LORD. So as you start you ponder what this week will hold, I encourage you to consider David’s dying testimony. Consider “this God” whose way is perfect! He is a shield for you! Take refuge in Him!
