June 11, 2024 – 1 Samuel 17:28-37


David convinces Saul to let him stand against Goliath saying the same Lord that protected him against the paw of lions and bears when protecting his sheep will protect him against Goliath. 


God began preparing David for this fight long before he encountered Goliath.  David had full confidence that the God who protected him before would not fail him now.  What has God prepared you for in your witness and service to him?  Seek his guidance as you pray to fulfill his will?


What has God delivered you from or through?  You have a testimony through your life.  Boldly share how God has delivered you from a Goliath as you faced your giant with Jesus Christ by your side. 



28  Now Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spoke to the men. And Eliab’s anger was kindled against David, and he said, “Why have you come down? And with whom have you left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know your presumption and the evil of your heart, for you have come down to see the battle.”  29  And David said, “What have I done now? Was it not but a word?”  30  And he turned away from him toward another, and

spoke in the same way, and the people answered him again as before.

31  When the words that David spoke were heard, they repeated them before Saul, and he sent for him.  32  And David said to Saul, “Let no man's heart fail because of him. Your servant will go and fight with this Philistine.”  33  And Saul said to David, “You are not able

to go against this Philistine to fight with him, for you are but a youth, and he has been a man of war from his youth.”  34  But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep sheep for his father. And when there came a lion, or a bear, and took a lamb from the flock,  35  I went after him and struck him and delivered it out of his mouth. And if he arose against me, I caught him by his beard and struck him and killed him.  36  Your servant has struck

down both lions and bears, and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, for he has defied the armies of the living God.”  37  And David said, “The LORD who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the LORD be with you!”
