Therefore take up the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Eph 6:13 ESV
Armour Ready – Part 5
There’s a story in the first book of Samuel where a young David declared in front of the whole Israelite army that he would fight Goliath in hand to hand combat to the death. At this stage, David wasn’t a king or a military mastermind with years worth of experience. He was a shepherd with an instinct for courage, an eye for strategy and an eager heart to outwork what he felt was so natural within him. When wild animals came to take his flock for food, he attacked them, killed them, conquered them. On his own. With his own hands and weapons. One day he found himself at the front line of battle, where his brothers were stationed and saw Goliath threaten the freedom and lives of his fellow tribesmen. So he did what he was born to do. Protect, with courage.
