David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 1 Samuel 17:45
What an amazing story, A story that has all of the elements for a action movie! David was in the midst of an epic event that will transcend the times, but he did not know that at the time.David had many things at the time in his hand. He was even given an armor which he set aside because he could not walk with it. He had a sling, rocks, a staff. But it is so interesting that even when he had many instruments handy, and even proven useful after his declaration, his TRUST and his THRUST came not from the instruments but from the NAME. From the power of the name.
Where is your trust? From where comes your thrust? Is it your abilities, your resources or the lack of them? Is your trust on what you see? Is your trust on what you can understand? Is your trust on the things you can control? David had His TRUST in the Name and got his THRUST from the NAME. David called HIM the LORD Almighty.
