1 Sam 17:45-48 NIV

David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the LORD will hand you over to me, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. Today I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.” As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. (1 Sam 17:45-48 NIV)

Prayer: LORD, when I face battles in my life, give me courage to run to them, not away from them. Reveal Your strategy and teach me how to fight. Then, I can run to the battle confident that I am going in Your strength and strategy. Through You, I can overcome anything that attempts to defeat You in me because the battle is Yours–and You always win! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
