Delightfully delving through 1 Samuel 17 and 18, one gets acquainted with David, Saul and the giant Goliath.  We all know the story, how one boy, one stone and God defeated this giant.  Yet, while delving through these scriptures there are a number of other truths to meditate on.

  1. Families don’t always understand the “call” God places on our life or the battles we face! (1 Samuel 17:28-29)
  2. Someone else’s armor may not be the weapon we need to win our fight.                              ( 1 Samuel 17: 38-40)
  3. The enemy laughs and taunts us during the attack. (1 Samuel 17: 41-44)
  4. The battle always belongs to our God. ( 1 Samuel 17:47)
  5. God brings people into our lives who become our #1 advocate and friend.                         (1 Samuel 18:4)
  6. When the “King” want to bless us, often times we feel unworthy. (1 Samuel 18: 18-23)

Six posts will follow in which we will take a closer look at each one of these lessons.  For now, let’s reflect on these truth’s in light of our own lives.

What giant are you facing today?  Whose armor are you wearing? Is God leading the battle or are you? Have you thanked your #1 advocate and friend?  Do you feel unworthy and if so, why?
