1 Samuel 17:47
Then all this assembly shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.”
-David was a very brave & courageous young man. He knew that the battle against Goliath & the rest of the Philistines was not his but the Lords’. Despite being very young, having no experience in military war, no fighting attire & no sword, he had great faith that God would deliver them from the Philistines; for the glory of His name. Before hitting Goliath’s head with a stone & chopping off his head, he made it clear to him that he came in the name of the Lord of hosts despite his coming with a full armament of sword, spear & javelin (1 Sam 17:45). This incident confirmed to Israelites that the Lord is not limited to anything & reaffirmed their faith to even pursue the Philistines & conquer them. The same message of faith is being communicated to us that we should have firm faith in God for without faith we cannot please Him.
Lord our Father; Your thoughts are not our thoughts nor Your way our way, we proclaim Your name on high. With a sling & stone David defeated the Philistine warrior, we believe that by Your mighty power You have already answered our prayers & empowered us out of any difficult situations in our lives, families & nation for the glory of Your name. We thank You Father, the rock of our salvation for Your everlasting love for us & for always helping us when we call on You. All glory, honor, power, victory & strength belong to You Lord, now & forever. Amen
