“David said moreover, The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine.”
1 Sam. 17:37.
THIS is not a promise if we consider only the words, but it is truly so as to its sense; for David spoke a word which the Lord endorsed by making it true. He argued from past deliverances that he should receive help in a new danger. In Jesus all the promises are Yea and Amen to the glory of God by us, and so the Lord’s former dealings with his believing people will be repeated.
Come, then, let us recall the Lord’s former loving-kindnesses. We could not have hoped to be delivered aforetime by our own strength; yet the Lord delivered us. Will he not again save us? We are sure he will. As David ran to meet his foe, so will we. The Lord has been with us, he is with us, and he has said, “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” Why do we tremble? Was the past a dream? Think of the dead bear and lion. Who is this Philistine? True, he is not quite the same, and is neither bear nor lion; but then God is the same, and his honour is as much concerned in the one case as in the other. He did not save us from the beasts of the forest to let a giant kill us. Let us be of good courage.
Spurgeon, C.H. (1834-1892)
After a moment of quietness, let the Spirit of God lead you as you pray for 5 people who you would love to see become followers of Jesus Christ, or people who you know have strayed from God. Name them before the Lord, asking God to reveal Himself to them, and that He would draw them in grace, mercy and love to trust and follow Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.
Close your prayer time with the Lord’s Prayer:
Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day
our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever. Amen.
