A Daily Devotion for Monday, September 7

Updated: Sep 8, 2020

1 Samuel 17:28-37

verse 37: “The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.” Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you.”

I feel I need to be careful with this verse and not interpret it to mean God will keep us safe no matter what. David had strong faith in God, and believed it was God’s will for him to fight Goliath. If God sends us out to do something, and we feel in our heart it is His will, then we must go and do it. The outcome will be God’s will, as well. It may not turn out like we wanted or expected it to turn out. But God’s will WILL be done. For me, the message and the lesson is about prayer and relationship with God. I will only know His will if I am seeking Him.

Holy Father, help me to draw nearer and nearer to you. I want to do your will. I am your servant, and would go where you would send me. Amen

20200907 Mon, Daily Devotion - 1 Samuel 17:28

[1 Samuel 17:28, NLT] But when David's oldest brother, Eliab, heard David talking to the men, he was angry. "What are you doing around here anyway?" he demanded. "What about those few sheep you're supposed to be taking care of? I know about your pride and deceit. You just want to see the battle!"

David’s walk by faith toward the enemy was bothered not by the enemy but by his oldest brother, Eliab. As you might experience this kind of situation in the past, many times the person who opposes, hinders or disturbs would be not only Satan but also a coworker or a team member or even family who we never…

1 Samuel 17: 28-37 (Verses 34-37) But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep sheep for his father. And when there came a lion, or a bear, and took a lamb from the flock, I went after him and struck him and delivered it out of his mouth. And if he arose against me, I caught him by his beard and struck him and killed him. Your servant has struck down both lions and bears, and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, for he has defied the armies of the living God.” And David said, “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the…

1 Samuel 17:28 - “When Eliab, David’s oldest brother, heard him speaking with the men, he burned with anger at him and asked, ‘Why have you come down here? And with whom did you leave those few sheep in the wilderness? I know how conceited you are and how wicked your heart is; you came down only to watch the battle.’”

David, the youngest of Jesse’s sons, is rudely dismissed by his big brother before he goes on to achieve what was not thought possible. How often do we underestimate the gifts and talents of others because of assumptions we make that may be wildly inaccurate? If a new brother or sister in Christ hears a call of God, it…
