Will He do it again? (I Samuel 17-20)

37 And David said, “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!” I Samuel 17:37

There are times when I open my Bible and read stories of great leaders and I wonder, could God really work this way in our day?  For example, as David faced Goliath, who was a towering nine feet plus figure, it was God who brought Goliath down.  I see such moments and I have encouraged faith to stand before my Goliath’s.  But then as I draw near to the moment of battle I begin to think, this is more than I can handle.

In such moments I have to decide either to attempt to defeat the enemy with my efforts or with a surrendered love for God.  David surrendered himself to God’s chosen purpose because he had learned to live in God’s miracle timeline.

We see this in 17:37.  When King Saul challenged his ability to win, David responded by sharing stories from his past about how God had won victory after victory.  In David’s mind, God had not changed.  So now He (God) would do it again.

2000 years ago Jesus came to this earth to seek and save the Lost.  For the last 2000 years He has been saving the lost.  As we approach Christmas we must ask, can He do it again?  Brothers and sisters, I know He can.

I watched Him do it yesterday in a woman’s life who had no hope. When Jesus showed up the weight was lifted as she surrendered her life to Jesus Christ.  I believe there may be people God is placing in your path who are asking, can God do it again.

Let me challenge you to open your mouth for God to fill it with His Word.  Stand before your Goliaths with the Word of the Lord.  He will do it again!!!
