1 Samuel 17

"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" (v37).  In the eyes of his brothers and the king, David was an inexperienced youth. However, he had seen the hand of God in his own life, and he had learned to depend on God’s mighty power. This challenge – the giant warrior defying Israel – was new, yet the power of the “Living God” to deliver was exactly the same (v36).

“For the battle is the Lord’s” (v47). Every new battle in our lives is a fresh opportunity to see God’s hand at work; His love and His power never fail.
