Today I’m praying God’s Word from a familiar story. David and Goliath fascinate me as much today as they did during my Sunday school days. Slaying a giant with no weapons to speak of? The fact that there even was a real life giant? Imagination captured!
While studying the passages, my focus stuck on the dramatic climax of this oft told tale. SPOILER ALERT:
“As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine [giant] on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground.” 1 Samuel 17:48-49 NIV
If you find yourself lacking context here, go read the whole thing. Look for fascinating details, such as, how young and small David was and how he refused to wear the king’s armor to fight. But I digress.
Praying God’s Word from This Passage
Satan stands between us and victory today. And Goliath’s defeat encourages me in the battles I see waged around me and in the lives of my children.
