The Lord Is With Him.

Key Verse

“Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the LORD is with him.” 1 Samuel 16:18

Text — 1 Samuel 16:18-21


Our key verse is long and interesting. It is a remark that somebody made about David. He was a very young person at this time. These are the things the person said about David:

(i) Cunning in playing: he has developed his God-given talent and became the best in the nation.
(ii) Mighty and valiant: he was bold and courageous and could conquer the champion of the Philistines.
(iii) Man of war: he rose up to defend his people from being slaves to their spiritual and physical enemies.
(iv) Prudent in matters: he was careful, cautious and wise.
(v) A comely person: he was mindful of his outward appearance too.
(vi) The Lord is with him: God was happy with David and helped him wherever he went.

Can you learn from this man’s remark about David? Those who know you closely will surely have something to say about you. Today, you must be careful about what you say and do because not only men, but God is watching you. He has something to say about you. Be the best for God wherever you go.
