1 Samuel 17:39 – Not Tested

Today’s Reading: 1 Samuel 17:1‐18:4, John 8:21‐30, Psalm 111:1‐10, Proverbs 15:11

1 Samuel 17:39 and David strapped his sword over his armor. And he tried in vain to go, for he had not tested them. Then David said to Saul, “I cannot go with these, for I have not tested them.” So David put them off.

You cannot fight with what you are not familiar.  David could not fight with Saul’s armor.  Saul could not fight with David’s faith.  They had not tested out those things.

Valley of Elah where David fought Goliath - Most scholars think the battle took place just below my right wrist

Apply: I want to make sure I am well acquainted with living by faith and not sight.  I have to daily be in prayer and the Word.

How do you test out the needed weapons for spiritual war?
