GOOD MORNING:

WELCOME:

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN:

OUR DAILY MEDITATION SCRIPTURES:

1 SAMUEL 17:1 – NOW THE PHILISTINES GATHERED THEIR FORCES FOR WAR AND ASSEMBLED AT SOKOH IN JUDAH. THEY PITCHED CAMP AT EPHES DAMMIM, BETWEEN SOKOH AND AZEKAH.

1 SAMUEL 17:2 – SAUL AND THE ISRAELITES ASSEMBLED AND CAMPED IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH AND DREW UP THEIR BATTLE LINE TO MEET THE PHILISTINES.

1 SAMUEL 17:3 – THE PHILISTINES OCCUPIED ONE HILL AND THE ISRAELITES ANOTHER, WITH THE VALLEY BETWEEN THEM.

1 SAMUEL 17:4 – A CHAMPION NAMED GOLIATH, WHO WAS FROM GOTH, CAME OUT OF THE PHILISTINE CAMP. HIS HEIGHT WAS SIX CUBITS AND A SPAN.

1 SAMUEL 17:5 – HE HAD A BRONZE HELMET ON HIS HEAD AND WORE A COAT OF SCALE ARMOR OF BRONZE WEIGHING FIVE THOUSAND SHEKELS;

1 SAMUEL 17:6 – ON HIS LEGS HE WORE BRONZE GREAVES, AND A BRONZE JAVELIN WAS SLUNG ON HIS BACK.

1 SAMUEL 17:7 – HIS SPEAR SHAFT WAS LIKE A WEAVER’S ROD, AND ITS IRON POINT WEIGHED SIX HUNDRED SHEKELS. HIS SHIELD BEARER WENT AHEAD OF HIM.

1 SAMUEL 17:8 – GOLIATH STOOD AND SHOUTED TO THE RANKS OF ISSRAEL, “WHY DO YOU COME OUT AND LINE UP FOR BATTLE? AM I NOT A PHILISTINE, AND ARE YOU NOT THE SERVANTS OF SAUL? CHOOSE A MAN AND HAVE HIM COME DOWN TO ME.

1 SAMUEL 17:9 – IF HE IS ABLE TO FIGHT AND KILL ME, WE WILL BECOME YOUR SUBJECTS; BUT IF I OVERCOME HIM AND KILL HIM, YOU WILL BECOME OUR SUBJECTS AND SERVE US.”

1 SAMUEL 17:10 – THEN THE PHILISTINES SAID, “THIS DAY I DEFY THE ARMIES OF ISRAEL! GIVE ME A MAN AND LET US FIGHT EACH OTHER.”

1 SAMUEL 17:11 – ON HEARING THE PHILISTINE’S WORDS, SAUL AND ALL THE ISRAELITES WERE DISMAYED AND TERRIFIED.

1 SAMUEL 17:12 – NOW DAVID WAS THE SON OF AN EPHRATHITE NAME JESSE, WHO WAS FROM BETHLEHEM IN JUAH. JESSE HAD EIGHT SONS, AND IN SAUL’S TIME HE WAS VERY OLD.

1 SAMUEL 17:13 – JESSE’S THREE OLDEST SONS HAD FOLLOWED SAUL TO THE WAR: THE FIRSTBORN WAS ELIAB; THE SECOND, ABINADAB; AND THE THIRD, SHAMMAH.

1 SAMUEL 17:14 – DAVID WAS THE YOUNGEST. THE THREE OLDEST FOLLOWED SAUL,

1 SAMUEL 17:15 – BUT DAVID WENT BACK AND FORTH FROM SAUL TO TEND HIS FATHER’S SHEEP AT BETHLEHEM.

1 SAMUEL 17:16 – FOR FORTY DAYS THE PHILISTINE CAME FORWARD EVERY MORNING AND EVENING AND TOOK HIS STAND.

1 SAMUEL 17:17 – NOW JESSE SAID TO HIS SON DAVID, “TAKE THIS EPHAH OF ROASTED GRAIN AND THESE TEN LOAVES OF BREAD FOR YOUR BROTHERS AND HURRY TO THEIR CAMP.

1 SAMUEL 17:18 – TAKE ALONG THESE CHEESES TO THE COMMANDER OF THEIR UNIT. SEE HOW YOUR BROTHERS ARE AND BRING BACK SOME ASSURANCE FROM THEM.

1 SAMUEL 17:19 – THEY ARE WITH SAUL AND ALL THE MEN OF ISRAEL IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH, FIGHTING AGAINST THE PHILISTINES.”

1 SAMUEL 17:20 – EARLY IN THE MORNING DAVID LEFT THE FLOCK IN THE CARE OF A SHEPHERD, LOADED UP AND SET OUT, AS JESSE HAD DIRECTED. HE REACHED THE CAMP AS THE ARMY WAS GOING OUT TO ITS BATTLE POSITIONS, SHOUTING THE WAR CRY.

“GLORY HALLELUJAH, THANK YOU JESUS”

“I THANK AND PRAISE EL SHADDAI MY ALMIGHTY GOD FOR HIS WONDERFUL WORD IN JESUS NAME!

“WE MUST CONTINUE TO STAND FIRM IN THE WORD OF GOD BECAUSE THAT IS WHERE OUR STRENGTH COMES FROM. I CAN ONLY SPEAK FOR MYSELF I GET MY STRENGTH FROM THE WORD. ITS TIME TO STOP LOOKING AND TALKING ABOUT THE SITUATION OR CIRCUMSTANCE BUT I WANT YOU ALL TO START BEING MORE POSITIVE MIDED BY LOOKING IN THE BIBLE FOR A PARTICULAR SCRIPTURE THAT ENCOURAGES YOU. I CAN ONLY SPEAK FOR MYSELF I LOVE PSALM 18:1 SAYS, I WILL LOVE THEE, O LORD, MY STRENGTH. PSALM 18:2 SAYS, THE LORD IS MY ROCK, AND MY FORTRESS, AND MY DELIVERER; MY GOD, MY STRENGTH, IN WHOM I WILL TRUST; MY BUCKLER, AND THE HORN OF MY SALVATION, AND MY HIGH TOWER. PSALM 18:3 SAYS, I WILL CALL UPON THE LORD, WHO IS WORTHY TO BE PRAISED: SO SHALL I BE SAVED FROM MINE ENEMIES.”

I PRAY THAT I HAVE SAID SOMETHING TO UPLIFT AND ENCOURAGE SOMEONE THIS MORNING IN JESUS NAME! AMEN.

ALWAYS REMEMBER: GOD LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!

HAVE A BLESSED TUESDAY!
