MARCH 2 – A ready answer
1Sa 17:32 And David said to Saul, Let no man’s heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine.
I will fight! That was David’s answer to the great challenge that was presented to Israel. We as a people must make up our mind if we are really for the Lord. We must decide if we love the lost enough to fight for souls. We must make up our mind if we are going to stand against sin. Let us break this down. What is sin? Have you noticed it is easy to say we are against sin and yet it is difficult to name the sins.
Lying is a sin. Stealing is a sin. Adultery and fornication is sin. Coveting is sin. Gossiping is sin. If God is not the most important person in your life, it is sin. Now there are many more sins that could be listed, such as not giving the first day of the week to the worship of God. It seems as if we cower before the enemy and that enemy is called sin. We cower before the lost and they are sinners.
We fondly say there is no problem that is too big for God and we live as cowards, not willing to fight the battles for the Lord. We proclaim how much we love the Lord and refuse to serve Him. We need more Davids. David did not see a problem with the Giant. He saw the victory of the Lord. Would to God, we as people of God saw the victory instead of experiencing the fear.
Dare to be a David and see victory in every battle. Let us be triumphant for the Lord.
