That All The Earth May Know...
Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.”
1 Samuel 17:45-46
God teaches about the extent of His control, by the tools He uses as His army to fight against His enemies. David understood that circumstances do not determine wins and losses – God does. Goliath appeared to be favored over David. Yet, it was David that had confidence only God can provide, unto victory that only God can supply. God showed that His hand is greater than the size and weaponry of the enemy. God was able to control the stone that flew from David’s sling, to impale the head of Goliath, enabling David to victory in the most stunning of ways! As a result, both the Philistines and Israel feared God, and rightly so!
