Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 19 May 2020

Giants Keep on Coming
“And there was war again with the Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Jair slew Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, whose spear staff was like a weaver's beam. And yet again there was war at Gath, where was a man of great stature, whose fingers and toes were four and twenty, six on each hand, and six on each foot: and he also was the son of the giant.”
(1 Chronicles 20:5-6)

Today’s Morsel:  When the children of Israel were sent to spy out the promised land, they returned with a report that there were giants in the land.  Years later, we see that there were still giants in the land.  But Israel had a promise from God that He would fight their battles for them.  However, Israel refused to walk by faith, they chose rather to walk by their sight.  Even though David had killed Goliath, the champion of the Philistines, he still had other brothers.  And it was one of those brothers that almost killed David later in battle. You may defeat many of your giant problems. But be assured, that they have brothers that will keep trying to destroy you.  Therefore, you must keep on the whole armor of God and trust in your brothers and sister to protect your back in prayer and give you warning just as David did.  When you are confronted with giant-size problems which way do you turn?  The cross is always the best direction.

Sing: When gloom and sadness whisper, you’ve sinned no use to pray; I look away to Jesus, and He tells me to say.
I see a crimson scream of blood, it flows from Calvary; its waves which reach the throne of God, are sweeping over me.

Thought For Today: Never let your guard down (Parker)
