Re:Verse passage – 1 Samuel 17:38-51 (day two) 

Then it happened when the Philistine rose and came and drew near to meet David, that David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet the Philistine. vs 48

How often do you run to meet a challenge? How often do you face insurmountable odds and danger with abandon? More importantly, how often do you feel the pleasure of the Lord in what you are called to do? Call it the impetuousness of youth if you like, but there is more than youthful zeal in David’s action. He has rightly discerned that if the Lord is for you, then nothing that opposes you will stand. This isn’t just a beloved Old Testament story, this is our spiritual reality. God doesn’t measure obstacles the way we do, just as he didn’t judge a king’s stature when choosing David. Know the Lord is on your side, and run to face whatever challenges are in your way.
