The Crown Week 7: Day 4

Read: 1 Samuel 17:41-58

Explore:

Where goes Goliath draw his confidence from as he goes into battle against David? How does this contrast with David’s confidence in verses 45-47?

What similarities does David’s victory over Goliath have with the Lord’s victory over Dagon back in 1 Samuel 5? What does this remind us about the power of God and how God operates?

Apply

Reread Hannah’s song in 1 Samuel 2:9-10.

How do we see this prophesy play out in the battle between David and Goliath?

Read Colossians 2:13-15

How do we see the way God is described as working in Hannah’s song at work in Jesus’death on the cross?

Pray

Praise God that he does not need armies and kings to fulfil his purposes. Thank God that Christ has overcome the power of sin and death by the cross.

Pray that we would have the eyes of Hannah and David, that we would trust in the strength, authority and wisdom of God. Pray that God would be at work through weaknessand that his kingdom would grow, both in your own life and across Perth.
