God’s ways are unique

“It is not by sword or spear the Lord saves, for the battle is the Lord’s” I Samuel 17: 47

The event of David defeating Goliath showcases the formidable faith David had on God. This example of faith could be a great fillip to our spiritual lives.

David was a shepherd boy who was unaware of the sophisticated military strategies of his days. But he knew a spiritual lesson which King Saul and the army of Israel did not understand – that God saves his people not through sword or spear.

He was not relying on any weapon to defeat the gigantic Goliath.

I am sure he was not also relying on the stones and the sling. He understood that when the battle is Lord’s he will even use the unassuming things to defeat the enemy.

Faith in God is enough!

This faith in God made him declare in front of everyone that, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty” (v.45).

When we face problems and uncertainties in our lives, we can use these lessons. World may think only a person who is stronger than the problem would overcome it. But God’s children know that when the battle is fought in the honour of God, He will use any unimportant ways to defeat the enemy.

When you face Goliath, do not fear if you don’t have sword or you are not used to handling spear. When God is with you, your limited strength (or even your worst weakness) is enough to overcome the enemy.

Indeed, God’s ways are unique.
