June 14, 2024 – 1 Samuel 17:45-47

To David this is all about the Philistines’ defilement of David’s God. He is unwilling to tolerate such behavior. He knows that God has sent him and that the victory will belong to God. He also knows that his primary goal is to let all of the earth know that there is a God in Israel and that the Lord God saves not with sword and spear. God has every intention of handing over Goliath to the Israelites.

Do you live every day with the same amount of confidence that David had in our God’s abilities to be victorious?  Stay in God’s word and ask Him to grow your confidence in Him. He will deliver in a mighty way.  


45 Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46 This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down and cut off your head. And I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel, 47 and that all this assembly may know that the Lord saves not with sword and spear. For the battle is the Lord's, and he will give you into our hand.”
