    Yahweh spoke to Manasseh, and to his people; but they didn't listen. Therefore Yahweh brought on them the captains of the army of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh in chains, bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon. When he was in distress, he begged Yahweh his God, and humbled himse...

    Your word is a lamp to my feet, And a light for my path. Psalms 119:105 WEBThe old oil lamps that were used in biblical times had a small radius of light. They would light the path just a few feet ahead of you, and you could not see very far down the road. When traveling by night, you could see just...

The Giant Killers

  • David therefore departed there, and escaped to the cave of Adullam: and when his brothers and all his father's house heard it, they went down there to him. Everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented, gathered themselves to him; and he became captain over them: and there were with him about four hundred men. 1 Samuel 22:1 WEB

    Saul the king of Israel, became extremely jealous over his son-in-law David and his endless victories. He felt that David was after his throne, and that the people were beginning to support him. As Saul grew more and more bitter, he finally went berserk and tried to pin David to the wall with a spear. So David had to leave town in a hurry. He found somewhere safe for his parents, then he went and stayed in a cave hideout.

    David was the original Robin Hood, an outlaw that king Saul wanted dead. Soon all the people who were outcasts, the black sheep, the unwanted, the bankrupt of the area, gathered to him and became a small army of four-hundred men. Later it grew to about six-hundred men (1Samuel 25:13).

    David saw something in them, and he turned this group into 'mighty men' that would do anything for him. They became valiant fighters who never lost a battle. Some of these were said to be a match for a hundred men, while the strongest of them were a match for a thousand.

    They became giant killers just like their leader David. Elhanan killed Goliath's brother (1Chronicles 20:5). Three of the men once heard David longing for water from the well in Bethlehem, which was occupied by an angry philistine army. They broke through the enemy lines and brought him some (2Samuel 23:15, 1Chronicles 11:17).

    No matter where you stand today, or what you have got yourself into, God sees the potential inside of you. With a relationship with Him you can become so much more than you ever dreamed. You cannot even seen the true potential that is inside of you until He reveals it. God will make your failure become a victory, and no one can stand before you, when God Almighty is behind you.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I surrender to You. Here I am Lord, use me. Teach me what I need to know. Help me find my proper place, where You want me to be. Fulfill Your will in my life, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
