I heard a great Bible study on david and Goliath – but in that battle, and all our battles if we ask for His help, it’s actually God against Goliath, which is the same as God against anything…
FOCUS ON GOD and your problems won’t compare… He has us placed in places to realize that we need to rely upon Him – and our dedication to Him starts by loving Him…
IT’S NOT US AGAINST THE WORLD (endless list of Goliaths) BUT GOD USING US FOR HIS VICTORY, testing our hearts… His victory is assured.
David & Goliath https://subspla.sh/mqghcsj
The battle is the Lord’s… don’t even look at your Goliath.
(in this bible study, the preacher also speaks about marching around Jericho, the duplicate scriptures of the week!!!)
1 Samuel 17:40, 45-50
Then he took his staff in his hand, chose five smooth stones from the stream, put them in the pouch of his shepherd’s bag and, with his sling in his hand, approached the Philistine.
David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. 47 All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.”
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 on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground.
So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him.
