David Must Have Been Crazy!

Seems to me that, like David, most of us are facing giants these days.  Like David, we seem to be urged to wrap ourselves in the protection that this world offers.  How’s that working for you? 

1 Samuel 17:37

37The LORD who delivered me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.”   Saul said to David, “Go, and the LORD be with you.”

If you’ve read the other verses from this chapter, you know tiny David was given so much of this world’s protection against his giant that he could scarcely move, much less do the Lord’s will.  So, the question becomes, when we like David face a giant and cannot do His will armed as this world provides, what do we do?  What David did!

1 Samuel 17:45

45 David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

When we arm ourselves with our trust in the Lord, we need not cover ourselves with pounds and pounds of steel and with machine guns and the like.  He has got us covered as nothing in this world ever could. 

Where the Lord guides, He provides.

    • Thanks, Sis! Gosh, we are so prone to lugging our stuff and letting the Lord know how it should be and there He is ready to take it all on Himself leaving us light as air and reflecting His Light! Wow, you know?

    • OH, wow, thanks for saying that. It blesses me so much. These words wouldn’t let go of me until I wrote them and I sensed they were from Him for someone. Now I know who!
