A little girl waded in a shallow creek while her father watched. Her rubber boots reached her knees. As she sloshed downstream, the water deepened until it flowed over the top of her waders. When she couldn’t take another step, she yelled, “Daddy, I’m stuck!” In three strides, her father was at her side, pulling her to the grassy bank. She yanked her boots off and laughed as water poured onto the ground.

After God rescued the psalmist David from his enemies, he took a moment to sit down, “pull off his boots,” and allow the relief to flood his soul. He wrote a song to express his feelings. “I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and have been saved from my enemies,” he said (2 Samuel 22:4). He praised God as his rock and fortress, shield, and stronghold, and then went on to narrate a poetic response of God’s response: The earth trembled. God came down from heaven. Lightning bolts flew from His presence. His voice thundered, and He drew him out of deep water (vv. 8, 10, 13–15, 17).

Maybe today you feel opposition around you. Maybe you’re stuck in sin that makes it hard to advance spiritually. Reflect on how God has helped you in the past—praise Him and ask Him to do it again! And thank Him especially for rescuing you by bringing you into His kingdom (Colossians 1:13).

Hello, friends, and thanks for joining us for today's edition of Our Daily Bread. Jennifer Benson Schult wrote our devotion, and she titled it Pulled to Safety. A little girl waded in a shallow creek while her father watched. Her rubber boots reached her knees. As she sloshed downstream, the water deepened until it flowed over the top of her waders. When she couldn't take another step, she yelled, Daddy, I'm stuck.

In three strides, her father was at her side, pulling her to the grassy bank. She yanked her boots off and laughed as water poured onto the ground. After God rescued the soul Miss David from his enemies, he took a moment to sit down, pull off his boots, and allow the relief to flood his soul. He wrote a song to express his feelings. He said in 2 Samuel 22, 4, I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and have been saved from my enemies. He praised God as his rock, fortress, shield, and stronghold, and then went on to narrate a poetic response of God's response. The earth trembled. God came down from heaven. Lightning bolts flew from his presence.

His voice thundered, and he drew him out of deep water. Maybe today you feel opposition around you. Maybe you're stuck in sin that makes it hard to advance spiritually. Reflect on how God has helped you in the past, and then praise him and ask him to do it again. Thank him especially for rescuing you by bringing you into his kingdom.

Today's Our Daily Bread devotional scripture reading is from 2 Samuel chapter 22, verses 13 through 20. Out of the brightness of his presence bolts of lightning blazed forth. The Lord thundered from heaven. The voice of the Most High resounded. He shot his arrows and scattered the enemy. With great bolts of lightning, he routed them.

The valleys of the sea were exposed, and the foundations of the earth laid bare at the rebuke of the Lord, at the blast of breath from his nostrils. He reached down from on high and took hold of me. He drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place.

He rescued me because he delighted in me. Let's pray. Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for coming to our aid when we need you. When we're faced with trials that we fear will overwhelm us, help us to remember that we can face any battle with you by our side. Thank you, Lord. It's in Jesus' name we pray. Amen. Thanks for listening today. My name is Alisha Reisinger, and today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread Ministries.
