📖: 1 Samuel 17
Confession: Exodus 14:14
In 1 Samuel 17 is the story of David and Goliath. David was a Jewish shepherd boy and Goliath of Gath was a giant warrior of the Philistines. They were opposite in size and in battle experience.
We are told that Goliath’s battle uniform was a helmet of brass, a coat of mail that weighed five thousand shekels of brass, greaves of brass upon his legs, a target of brass between his shoulders, a spear which head weighed six hundred shekels of iron and a shield. Saul, the King, dressed David with his own armour and helmet but David refused them because he was not used to them, instead he chose five smooth stones from a brook.
David prepared for the battle with faith, trust, and obedience in God. He did not rely in his own ability, he was bold and not afraid of the size of Goliath. The Everlasting God, the “Mighty Man of War”, “the Conqueror” gave David and the people of Israel victory over the Philistines. No matter how much our enemy is armed, when God is behind us, there is no one you cannot have victory over
The spiritual Goliath that challenges our existence and progress in life might seem too large for “five smooth stones” but we must know that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal ( 2 Corinthians 10:4) hence we must put on the whole armour of God (Ephesians 6:11-20). The Lord will fight for us (Exodus 14:14). We must fight the fight of faith (1 Timothy 6:12) and God wll make us victorious in Jesus’ name. “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31).
To connect to the raw power of God, we must be obedient to His Word. For those of us that have not surrender their lives to Jesus, do so now, tomorrow might be too late. DO IT NOW! and stay connected to Jesus Christ the Author and Finisher of our faith. Stay connected! Stay focused! Stay blessed! Shalom!!!
