Day 18: The Young Hero and the Horrible Giant

Read: Jesus Storybook Bible 122-129 or 1 Samuel 17 Think: The story of David and Goliath isn’t about our facing our own giants, but rather about a God who fights for his people to save them. Rather than identifying with David when we read this, we should identify with the fearful crowd unable to conquer Goliath. Just as David rose up to save his people, so Jesus has saved us from an even greater enemy. We are benefactors of God’s saving and conquering action. Pray: For hope in Christ when we perceive the enemies of God to be winning on a daily basis in our own experience. That we would turn to Jesus and rely upon the Holy Spirit’s strength to help us wait.
