Lord, who is worthy to be praised

“I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.”   (II Samuel 22:4)(KJV)

King David is a person who praises the Lord in all his circumstances. He lifts his voice to the Lord of Heaven in whom he kept all his trust.

David sung many songs when he was a Shepherd. Psalm 23 was written by him when he was taking care of his father’s sheep in wilderness. David showed his love for God through songs. Also, Psalms 23 is called the Nightingale of Psalms with tones of intimacy, perfect trust, Rest Peace and Abundance of Goodness.

Even when David was in trouble he never sought help from any man but the Lord. When he was chased by Saul or when he was living in the land of Philistines. He inquired of God and did as per His response. In all his life time David obeyed and loved Lord.

“And David inquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.” (I Samuel 30:8)

Not only in times of trouble and happiness had he depended on the Lord but even when he sinned against the Lord. Yes! When David took Bathsheba the wife of Uriah his reply was that he sinned against the Lord and we could see every layer of repentance and forgiveness seeking in the Psalms 51.

“David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD” (II Samuel 12:13)

“David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let us fall now into the hand of the LORD; for his mercies are great: and let me not fall into the hand of man.” (II Samuel 24:14)

Yes! What a faithful and loyal servant of God! He sang praises and sought forgiveness and in all that he did his first preference was the Lord! And that’s why he sang,

“I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.” (Psalms 16:8)

Yes, he was not moved are even shaken by any of the kings in the world. We could see that David has won all the battles. And the Lord honoured and acknowledged him as soon as he calls. What a blessed life have David lived!

Friends today do you have that assurance in your life as David? Is a Lord answering your prayer as soon as you pray? If not, then set the Lord before you and keep Him as your first preference in all your circumstances. None could ever have problem as David had in his life, he was not a respected one among his brothers, his own father-in-law tried to kill him and all to that his very own son took his throne and tried to kill him. Do you think you have greater problem than this? Never! God has blessed us with all peace. It is we who wontedly fall into temptation and think we are in trouble. So Friends even in your life, Keep the Lord at first and Lord will do the rest! Amen.

Abad of Jesus Christ,
