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
