Key Verse

“Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God” (1 Samuel 17:36).

Text — 1 Samuel 17:32-37


Most animals have very strong instincts for defending their young. A lioness is in a fiercest mood when it senses that its cub is threatened. Even the harmless hen, uses all it strength to fight anyone who threatens it chicks. David was a confident defender from his youth. Later, Hushai described King David and his mighty men as “chafed in their minds, as a bear robbed of her whelps in the field’’ (2 Samuel 17:8).

Young shepherd David shared his testimony before King Saul before he was permitted to fight and kill the Philistine giant, Goliath. Throughout his life, he defended Israel to the glory of God. You are also called to confidently preach the word of God everywhere you go. Bullies must not stop you. Speak for Jesus at all times. Warn sinners everywhere of the danger of contending with their Creator, God. Be faithful and God will lead you to bring the vilest of sinners to Christ. Preach to your schoolmates, teachers and people in your neighbourhood. Use your media links to spread the gospel of Christ.
