June 17, 2024 – 1 Samuel 17:53-58

Again this passage makes me smile. Here David once again has the opportunity to tell Saul he is the son of Jesse. This scripture allows us to know that mighty things will come from this young man as he part of the lineage of our savior, Jesus Christ. I love seeing how God’s plan unfolds as He leads us to follow his Son.  The linage of Christ is clearly laid out in the New Testament and we are seeing the development of God’s plan as we read through the Old Testament.

Thank you, God, for providing glimpses of your plan unfold as we read your word daily. Thank you for guiding us daily and loving us unconditionally just as you did David. May we always seek your will for our lives and watch your beautiful plan for us unfold.


53 And the people of Israel came back from chasing the Philistines, and they plundered their camp. 54 And David took the head of the Philistine and brought it to Jerusalem, but he put his armor in his tent.

55 As soon as Saul saw David go out against the Philistine, he said to Abner, the commander of the army, “Abner, whose son is this youth?” And Abner said, “As your soul lives, O king, I do not know.” 56 And the king said, “Inquire whose son the boy is.” 57 And as soon as David returned from the striking down of the Philistine, Abner took him, and brought him before Saul with the head of the Philistine in his hand. 58 And Saul said to him, “Whose son are you, young man?” And David answered, “I am the son of your servant Jesse the Bethlehemite.”
