Father and son authors T. F. and Tommy Tenny make this Biblical Power Point:
God saw past the surface and peered into David’s heart. When young David told King Saul he would go out to meet Goliath in battle, he didn’t brag, “Watch how good my aim is!” He didn’t even mention the slingshot and the 5 smooth stones or the fact that he had just enough “ammunition” for Goliath. He just said, “The Lord, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine” (1 Sam 17:37).
Oddly enough, The Amplified (Bible) Version says David put the stones in his lunch bag! He wasn’t going to a fight; he was en-route to a picnic. Goliath bragged, “I’m going to eat your lunch,” but little did he know what was in David’s lunch bag. David was willing to let go–to relinquish self–to the glory of God, and miracles happened.

A prayer for the leaders of the IDF:
Moshe Ya’alon, Minister of Defense
Danny Danon, Deputy Minister of Defense
Lt. Gen. Benjamin Gantz, IDF Chief of General Staff
God of Israel, thank you for making the IDF a mighty army. We ask for a revelation of David’s Zionism among the leaders of the IDF, and Israel’s Defense Department, and their prayer supporters. Reveal Your Word about their right to the land. Give them unity and a fresh vision for their calling. To these leaders, impart your divine wisdom, humility, and the boldness of King David–a man after your own heart. We ask these things in the name of the Messiah of Israel. Amen.
