Part 5 of "The Rivah" A Series on Rivers in the Bible“Then [David] took his staff in his hand, chose five smooth stones from the stream, put them in the pouch of his shepherd’s bag and, with his sling in his hand, approached the Philistine” (1 Samuel 17:40, NIV).Three main characters in this narrative:1.The Adversary – Goliath, who HATES God and everything that God represents.2.The Advocate – David, who STANDS AGAINST the one who defies God.•God’s faithfulness yesterday helps us face our tomorrows (v. 37)•Christians don’t go with the flow . . . we go against the current (v. 38-40)•We must recognize that all of the Christian life is spiritual warfare (2 Cor. 4:7-12)•Never underestimate the power of God in our weakness (1 Sam. 17:41-42 Cor. 12:9-10)3.The Almighty -- God. Our chief end is to GLORIFY God. When God’s reputation is at stake, we must stand up where we are.•1 Corinthians 10:31•Malachi 3:16•Revelation 5:11-14
