Experience Required

1 Samuel 17:37

“The LORD who delivered me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.”

Experience with God is a very powerful tool. David said, “I can take on Goliath because of the experiences I’ve had.” As a shepherd, he could have lost part of his flock to the predators that were about. Predators weren’t unique to the flock he was keeping; they were indigenous to the region and preyed on all the flocks.  All of the shepherds faced those problems, but David recognized a God-opportunity in them and honed his fighting skills. He said, “God delivered that predator into my hand, and God delivered that predator into my hand, and God will deliver this predator into my hand.” He had experience that separated him from a whole army of trained warriors. God-experiences in your life make a difference. 

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of David, who trusted You to deliver a giant into his hands. Give me courage, Lord, when I am faced with problems that seem to tower over me like giants. Remind me that Your faithfulness to me in the past will bring deliverance and victory over the problems of today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
