1 Samuel 8โ€“10; 13; 15โ€“18
“๐šƒ๐š‘๐šŽ ๐™ฑ๐šŠ๐š๐š๐š•๐šŽ ๐™ธ๐šœ ๐š๐š‘๐šŽ ๐™ป๐š˜๐š›๐šโ€™๐šœ”

Ever since the tribes of Israel had settled in the promised land, the Philistines had been an ongoing threat to their safety.

Many times in the past, the Lord had delivered the Israelites from their enemies.

But now the elders of Israel demanded, โ€œWe will have a king โ€ฆ [to] go out before us, and fight our battlesโ€ (1 Samuel 8:19–20).

The Lord relented, and Saul was anointed king. And yet when the menacing giant Goliath hurled his challenge to the armies of Israel, Saulโ€”like the rest of his armyโ€”was โ€œgreatly afraidโ€ (1 Samuel 17:11).

On that day, it wasnโ€™t King Saul who saved Israel but a humble shepherd boy named David, who was wearing no armor but was clothed with impenetrable faith in the Lord.

This battle proved to Israel, and to anyone who has spiritual battles to fight, that โ€œthe Lord saveth not with sword and spearโ€ and that โ€œthe battle is the Lordโ€™sโ€ (1 Samuel 17:47).
