Who is a rock, except our God? 2 Samuel 22:31-32

31 As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him. 32 β€œFor who is God, except the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God?”

2 Samuel 22:31-32 (NKJV)

31 What a God! His road stretches straight and smooth. Every God-direction is road-tested. Everyone who runs toward him Makes it. 32 Is there any god like God? Are we not at bedrock?

2 Samuel 22:31-32 (MSG)

After the Lord delivered David from his enemies and Saul, he wrote this song/psalm. David depended on the Lord, believed in His promises, turned to Him in prayer, and followed His way. The Lord protected and shielded David, keeping him safe. In this song, David acknowledges that his achievements all came from God. What a God! His way is perfect; there is none like Him.
This chapter in 2 Samuel is known as; David’s Psalm of Thanksgiving, Davids’s Psalm of Deliverance, and David’s Psalm of Deliverance and Manifold Blessings. The verses are repeated with little variation again in Psalm 18.
Verse 32 sums up the power and greatness of the Lord; For who is God, except the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God? Yes, the Lord is our rock, strong, steadfast, and our safe refuge.

Is the Lord your rock? Do you lean on Him during times of trouble like David did?

Prayer; Our Lord, our guide and protector, you are our strength and our shield. We thank Your direction and Your perfect way. Teach us to rely on You and turn to You during times of trouble. Lord, You are our God, our hope, our rock. Like the beautiful iris is nestled by rock and reaching toward the sky, let us lean on You, our rock, and reach upward toward You. In Jesus’ holy and loving name. Amen

If you need prayer, I will be glad to pray for you. Leave a comment or message me on the contact page. 🌺
