GOOD MORNING:

WELCOME:

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN:

OUR DAILY MEDITATION SCRIPTURES:

1 SAMUEL 17:32 – DAVID SAID TO SAUL, “LET NO ONE LOSE HEART ON ACCOUNT OF THIS PHILISTINE; YOUR SERVANT WILL GO AND FIGHT HIM.”

1 SAMUEL 17:33 – SAUL REPLIED, “YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO GO OUT AGAINST THIS PHILISTINE AND FIGHT HIM; YOU ARE ONLY A YOUNG MAN, AND HE HAS BEEN A WARRIOR FROM HIS YOUTH.”

1 SAMUEL 17:34 – BUT DAVID SAID TO SAUL, “YOUR SERVANT HAS BEEN KEEPING HIS FATHER’S SHEEP. WHEN A LION OR A BEAR CAME AND CARRIED OFF A SHEEP FROM THE FLOCK,

1 SAMUEL 17:35 – I WENT AFTER IT, STRUCK IT AND RESCUED THE SHEEP FROM ITS MOUTH. WHEN IT TURNED ON ME, I SEIZED IT BY ITS HAIR, STRUCK IT AND KILLED IT.

1 SAMUEL 17:36 – YOUR SERVANT HAS KILLED BOTH THE LION AND BEAR; THIS UNCIRCUMCISED PHILISTINE WILL BE LIKE ONE OF THEM, BECAUSE HE HAS DEFILE THE ARMIES OF THE LIVING GOD.

1 SAMUEL 17:37 – THE LORD WHO RESCUED ME FROM THE PAW OF THE BEAR WILL RESCUE ME FROM THE HAND OF THE PHILISTINE.” SAUL SAID TO DAVID, “GO, AND THE LORD BE WITH YOU.”

1 SAMUEL 17:38 – THEN SAUL DRESSED DAVID IN HIS OWN TUNIC. HE PUT A COAT OF ARMOR ON HIM AND A BRONZE HELMET ON HIS HEAD.

1 SAMUEL 17:39 – DAVID FASTENED ON HIS SWORD OVER THE TUNIC AND TRIED WALKING AROUND, BECAUSE HE WAS NOT USED TO THEM. “I CANNOT GO IN THESE, “HE SAID TO SAUL, “BECAUSE I AM NOT USE TO THEM.” SO HE TOOK THEM OFF.

1 SAMUEL 17:40 – THEN HE TOOK HIS STAFF IN HIS HAND, CHOSE FIVE SMOOTH STONES FROM THE STREAM, PUT THEM IN THE POUCH OF HIS SHEPHERD’S BAG AND, WITH HIS SLING IN HIS HAND, APPROACHED THE PHILISTINE.

1 SAMUEL 17:41 – MEANWHILE, THE PHILISTINE, WITH HIS SHIELD BEARER IN FRONT OF HIM, KEPT COMING CLOSER TO DAVID.

1 SAMUEL 17:42 – HE LOOKED DAVID OVER AND SAW THAT HE WAS LITTLE MORE THAN A BOY, GLOWING WITH HEALTH AND HANDSOME, AND HE DESPISED HIM.

1 SAMUEL 17:43 – HE SAID TO DAVID, “AM I DOG, THAT YOU COME TO ME WITH STICKS?” AND THE PHILISTINE CURSED DAVID BY HIS GODS.

1 SAMUEL 17:44 – “COME HERE,” HE SAID, “AND I’LL GIVE YOUR FLESH TO THE BIRDS AND THE WILD ANIMALS!”

1 SAMUEL 17:45 – DAVID SAID TO THE PHILISTINE, “YOU COME AGAINST ME WITH SWORD AND SPEAR AND JAVELIN, BUT I COME AGAINST YOU IN THE NAME OF THE LORD ALMIGHTY, THE GOD OF THE ARMIES OF ISRAEL, WHOM YOU HAVE DEFIED.

1 SAMUEL 17:46 – THIS DAY THE LORD WILL DELIVER YOU INTO MY HANDS, AND I’LL STRIKE YOU DOWN AND CUT OFF YOUR HEAD. THIS VERY DAY I WILL GIVE THE CARCASSES OF THE PHILISTINE ARMY TO THE BIRDS AND THE WILD ANIMALS, AND THE WHOLE WORLD WILL KNOW THAT THERE IS A GOD IN ISRAEL.

1 SAMUEL 17:47 – ALL THOSE GATHERED HERE WILL KNOW THAT IT IS NOT BY SWORD OR SPEAR THAT THE LORD SAVES; FOR THE BATTLE IS THE LORD’S, AND HE WILL GIVE ALL OF YOU INTO OUR HANDS.”

1 SAMUEL 17:48 – AS THE PHILISTINES MOVED CLOSER TO ATTACK HIM, DAVID RAN QUICKLY TOWARD THE BATTLE LINE TO MEET HIM.

1 SAMUEL 17:49 – REACHING INTO HIS BAG AND TAKING OUT A STONE, HE SLUG IT AND STRUCK THE PHILISTINE ON THE FOREHEAD. THE STONE SANK INTO HIS FOREHEAD, AND HE FELL FACEDOWN ON THE GROUND.

1 SAMUEL 17:50 – SO DAVID TRIUMPHED OVER THE PHILISTINE WITH A SLING AND A STONE; WITHOUT A SWORD IN HIS HAND HE STRUCK DOWN THE PHILISTINE AND KILLED HIM.

1 SAMUEL 17:51 – DAVID RAN AND STOOD OVER HIM. HE TOOK HOLD OF THE PHILISTINE’S SWORD AND DREW IT FROM THE SHEATH. AFTER HE KILLED HIM, HE CUT OFF HIS HEAD WITH THE SWORD. WHEN THE PHILISTINES SAW THAT THEIR HERO WAS DEAD, THEY TURNED AND RAN.

1 SAMUEL 17:52 – THEN THE MEN OF ISRAEL AND JUDAH SURGED FORWARD WITH A SHOUT AND PURSUED THE PHILISTINES TO THE ENTRANCE OF GATH AND TO THE GATES OF EKRON. THEIR DEAD WERE STREWN ALONG THE SHAARAIM ROAD TO GATH AND EKRON.

1 SAMUEL 17:53 – WHEN THE ISRAELITES RETURNED FROM CHASING THE PHILISTINES, THEY PLUNDERED THEIR CAMP.

1 SAMUEL 17:54 – DAVID TOOK THE PHILISTINE’S HEAD AND BROUGHT IT TO JERUSALEM; HE PUT THE PHILISTINE’S WEAPONS IN HIS OWN TENT.

1 SAMUEL 17:55 – AND SAUL WATCHED DAVID GOING OUT TO MEET THE PHILISTINE, HE SAID TO ABNER, COMMANDER OF THE ARMY, “ABNER, WHOSE SON IS THAT YOUNG MAN?” ABNER REPLIED, “AS SURELY AS YOU LIVE, YOUR MAJESTY, I DON’T KNOW.”

1 SAMUEL 17:56 – THE KING SAID, “FIND OUT WHOSE SON IS THIS YOUNG MAN IS.”

1 SAMUEL 17:57 – AS SOON AS DAVID RETURNED FROM KILLING THE PHILISTINE, ABNER TOOK HIM AND BROUGHT HIM BEFORE SAUL, WITH DAVID STILL HOLDING THE PHILISTINE’S HEAD.

1 SAMUEL 17:58 – “WHOSE SON ARE YOU, YOUNG MAN?” SAUL ASKED HIM. DAVID SAID, “I AM THE SON OF YOUR SERVANT JESSE OF BETHLEHEM.”

“GLORY HALLELUJAH, THANK YOU JESUS, PRAISE GOD”

“I MAGNIFY AND GLORIFY EL SHADDAI MY ALMIGHTY GOD FOR HIS GLORIOUS WORD IN JESUS NAME!”

“DAVID LOVED GOD WITH ALL OF HIS HEART EVEN THOUGH HIS BROTHERS AND THE ARMIES WAS AFRAID OF THIS GIANT BUT, DAVID HAD GREAT FAITH KNOWING THAT THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY WAS GOING TO DELIVER THIS UNCIRCUMCISED PHILISTINE GIANT INTO HIS HANDS IN JESUS NAME AND REGARDLESS, OF THE GIANTS WE FACE DAY TO DAY WE HAVE TO HAVE STRONG FAITH LIKE DAVID IN BELIEVING THAT GOD CAN DO THE SAME THING FOR US. I CAN ONLY SPEAK FOR MYSELF I KNOW GOD CAN DO MIGHTY THINGS IN MY LIFE AND I THANK HIM FOR WHAT HE HAVE ALREADY DONE FOR ME IN JESUS NAME!”

“ALWAY REMEMBER: TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME AND FIGHT ONE BATTLE AT A TIME IN JESUS NAME!”

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

ALWAYS REMEBER: GOD LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!

HAVE A BLESSED TUESDAY IN JESUS NAME!
