My favorite chapter in First Samuel, and one of my go-to chapters in the entire Bible . . . a battle between Israel and the Philistines—better known as David and Goliath.

    When I read about how the Israelite army was afraid, I was reminded of 2 Timothy 1:7 that says God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear. As I kept reading, verse 51 gave me more insight. The Israelites let one man scare the faith out of them because they were looking at their own human ability and feeling they fell short. The Philistines were also putting their faith in human ability, that of Goliath. So when he fell, their faith in obtaining a victory fell with him. Both groups putting faith in the natural. Never a wise path to take!
