Bible Lesson 20: David Is Confident in God
Memory Verse: Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my rock where I seek refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
- Though just a teenager, David was known as a skilled musician, a brave warrior, a good speaker, a handsome man, and a godly man.
- David was able to be as faithful on the inside as he appeared to be on the outside because he was a man after God’s own heart and he did God’s will.
- According to 1 Samuel 16:7, when God looks at a person, He looks at the heart, while people look at the outward appearance.
- The Spirit of God never left David, as He had Saul.
- Some of the obstacles to faith that David faced included Goliath’s size, strength, experience, weapons, and defiance of God; David’s brother Eliab’s rebuke; King Saul’s lack of faith; Saul’s armor; Israel’s fear; and thousands of spectators expecting David’s failure and death.
- In spite of serious challenges to his faith, David maintained his trust in God.
- David’s trust in God gave him great boldness to fight Goliath.
- The result of David’s faith, trust, and boldness was righteous leadership and victory over Goliath.
- A cubit is defined as a measurement of length measuring 18 inches.
- A span is defined as a measurement of length measuring 9 inches.
- Goliath was nine feet, nine inches tall.
- Saul became jealous and afraid of David and tried to kill him. Jonathan, Saul’s son, loved David as a true friend.
- God’s promise to David is sometimes called the Davidic Covenant.
- Once God has guaranteed something will happen, nothing can stop it.
- David said he would not harm King Saul, the Lord’s anointed.
- According to Mark 12:29-30, believers should love God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength.
- Everything within a believer should be focused on loving God.
- According to Mark 12:31, believers should love other people as much as themselves.
- David usually acted wisely wherever he went and in everything he did, reflecting his good heart attitude toward God. The exception to this was the case of Uriah the Hittite.
- A strong relationship with God results in making wise and courageous choices.
