Going through with my communion I learnt of David in his encounter with Goliath. He had been equipped over the course of his years while doing stuff that “probably” went unrecognized. The training proved to be quite efficient as he came forth with skill and confidence.

When the time was set to put them to use, he however took a turn. Yes, he was confident; yes he was sure of his skills. His trust he placed in God, the Coach. David did not take it for granted that with the skills and confidence he was good to go. He placed them in God’s able hands trusted that God would use them to grant victory over Goliath…God did.

Do we forget God once we are fully trained? Do we turn to the arm of flesh cause we think we have it all?

Then said David to the Philestine, thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. 1 Samuel 17:45
