We all know the story of David killing Goliath with a sling and a stone. When I read about David killing the lions and the bears, I thought he used a slingshot; but today’s verses show us he used a club.

1 Samuel 17:34, 35, “But David persisted. ‘I have been taking care of my father’s sheep and goats,’ he said. ‘When a lion or a bear comes to steal a lamb from the flock, I go after it with a club and rescue the lamb from its mouth. If the animal turns on me, I catch it by the jaw and club it to death.'” NLT

David didn’t kill the lions or bears unless they turned on him. Then he grabbed it by the jaw and killed it. He knew the Lord would rescue him, 17:37.

Dear Jesus,

Sometimes, we have to take the bull by the horns, but we know you protect us. I am grateful that we don’t even have to worry about what to speak because you promise to give us the words.
