1 Samuel 17:48-49 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

1 Samuel 17:48-49

As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground. 


Last night, I was lying in bed, and God brought to my mind the story of David and Goliath, specifically the part where David throws the stone. I was wondering whether God made David’s arm super strong or Goliath’s head soft at that moment, or maybe it was the angle at which it struck him?


Then it hit me that it doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is that God did it! But it showed me how quickly I can become focused on details that don’t truly matter. What truly matters isn’t so much the how but The Who!!


In today’s world, it’s so easy to get distracted with the things around us and not focus on the One who created them! If the devil can get us arguing about things that don’t matter, then we will miss the point! The point isn’t how David did this but that he trusted God and God used Him –despite what was happening around him!!


There are a million ways the enemy can distract us, and only one way to overcome those distractions, and that is focusing on Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior!! I pray that we all can focus more on the Answer and less on the distraction of this world!!!


I love you all, God bless, and Glory to God!!!
