What God Can Do For Us!
So it was, when the Philistine arose and came and drew near to meet David, that David hurried and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine. Then David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone; and he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead, so that the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth. So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him…
1 Samuel 17:48-50
Goliath went forward to meet David. The young lad placed a single stone in his sling and swung it around––and around. At the right time, he let go of one side of the sling, releasing the stone through the air. The stone went straight––as God directed it––right into the Goliath’s forehead! The stone sank into his brain! Imagine, Goliath must have been cross-eyed, as he tottered––his way and that way. Finally he fell, and he went down flat on his face––dead. Look what God had done! He fought the battle.
Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego faced being thrown into a fiery furnace. They would not bow down to King Nebuchadnezzar’s image of gold. They told him:
…“O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up” (Daniel 3:16-18).
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego were thrown into the fiery furnace, but God was with them. Nebuchadnezzar was astonished and said: …“I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like theSon of God” (Daniel 3:25).
Honestly think about your own life; it is not what you can do for God––it is what He can do for you!
Anything God has ever done, He can do now. Anything God has ever done anywhere, He can do here. Anything that God has ever done for anyone, He can do for you.
