Good morning.

David’s show of bravery in facing a terrifying giant is one of the first Bible stories children learn as a lesson about faith and courage against all odds.

David didn’t approach King Saul thinking he had something to prove. He simply saw a need and believed in God’s goodness to meet that need. The fact is Goliath and his army stood against God’s purpose and will for His people. There was simply no question in David’s mind and heart about joining God in that purpose and will.

"The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.” Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you.”

(1 Samuel 17:37)

God had already proven His goodness to David and David had marked those events in his heart as an "Ebenezer". That memory led him to believe God’s goodness wouldn’t end in the present moment.

It's easy for us to forget God's goodness for fear of our present or future circumstances. But when we look back, we see God was always there. He has always met our needs, and He won’t stop now.

Let's face today with the assurance that we have the victory over the "giants". "For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.” (Deuteronomy 20:4)

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
