In the name of the Lord…

In the name of the Lord…
“Then said David to the philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.” 1 Sam.17:45. (KJV).
David could not stand God being mocked.
Even though he was relatively young and small in stature compared to Goliath.
You do not have to be big and strong to serve God.
God needs a willing and trusting heart.
Are you comfortable where God is being mocked?
Can God rely on you to do His work?
Do you trust God to help you in your daily life?
Do you fear the onslaughts of daily life?
David could not understand why the strong soldiers of the Israelites were so scared of Goliath.
He could not understand why they allowed Goliath to defy God.
Will you be too scared to defend your faith in God?
When you stand up for God, He will defend His name through you.
“Then he answered and spoke unto me, saying, “This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ saith the Lord of hosts.” Zechariah 4:6
Application to the Christian life:
Be prepared to stand up for Jesus.
Be strong in faith to withstand mockery. Be a soldier for God.
He will protect and bless you.
