David and Goliath
I have heard so many different sermons about David and Goliath.
Some simple observations. Taken From 1 Samuel 17
17:26 And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?
David did not allow the Philistine to frighten him. We should Not let the Unbelievers or Doubters, or Atheist in this world scare us into Not Standing Up For What We Believe.
He had experienced victories before, in and through the Lord and he Knew God Would Deliver Him Again.
Who can Go against our God?
When God is For Us…Who Can Be Against Us?
It is a Win……Win situation. God Can’t loose…..We Can’t Loose.
But King Saul looked at everything through the eyes of man. Not through the eyes of faith in our Living God..
To trust God, We have to See what He Sees..Not What We See.
17:33 And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth.
Past victories! We can be assured that our God who has delivered us in the past….Will Do It Again.
The first thing David did was activate his Faith.
17:37 David said moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the LORD be with thee.
David went to Battle, Not in his own might but in the Name of the Lord.
The Battle was God’s …….Not David’s…and David Knew It.
Nothing can Touch us unless God permits it. So the Battle Is Always His.
We must Face Each Day As We Are Doing Battle Beside The Lord.
We Are In His Army and He Never Looses.
Want to be on the Winning Side? Be On God’s Side.
And Above All Else…..Do Not Be Afraid or Ashamed To Proclaim It.
17:45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.
Now With God on Our Side….Let Us Go Out There and Face The World With Confidence. David and Goliath
