GOLIATH DARES THE GOD OF ISRAEL, ECWA DEVOTIONAL
FRIDAY, 31 JULY
TEXT: 1 SAMUEL 17: 1 – 27
TOPIC: GOLIATH DARES THE GOD OF ISRAEL
On the battle field against the Israelites, Goliath the champion of the Philistines came out to challenge not just the army of Israel but the God of the Israelites. Every soldier was afraid of Goliath. Some of the Israelites even began to run away in fright. David, a young man was infuriated as he heard him defy the God of Israel and asked “who is this pagan Philistine… allowed to defy the armies of the living God?” You may be the David that God is sending to honor Him by rising against the forces defying the Almighty God. You can rise up in prayer and fight the pagans or the uncircumcised people who are out to destroy the church of God.
QUESTION: How long will you allow uncircumcised people defy the living God?
PRAYER: Use me Lord as Your own battle axe to destroy all the plans of those who defy You. Let their gathering and boasting be characterized by confusion and division. Let them see and know that no one can battle the Lord.
