“David answered, ‘You come at me with sword and spear and battle-ax. I come at you in the name of God-of-the-Angel-Armies, the God of Israel’s troops, whom you curse and mock. This very day God is handing you over to me. I’m about to kill you, cut off your head, and serve up your body and the bodies of your Philistine buddies to the crows and coyotes. The whole earth will know that there’s an extraordinary God in Israel. And everyone gathered here will learn that God doesn’t save by means of sword or spear. The battle belongs to God—he’s handing you to us on a platter!'” 1 Samuel 17:45-47 The Message
I know, some of this is rather gruesome. But we heard a message yesterday all about facing those “giants” in our lives, and the speaker asked the question, “Do you have a battle cry when you face your giant?”
This passage is David’s battle cry.
So I’ll ask you the same questions we were asked:
- What giant are you facing this week?
- Do you have a battle cry when you face that giant?
May your giant be handed to you on a platter this week!
