This week Pastor Bob DeGray continues his new series on the Life of David. This week we’ll look at the famous confrontation between David and Goliath and see how it was David’s zeal for the Lord that made the difference. The worship theme is “The Battle is the Lord’s,” and the visual theme is “five smooth stones.”

Call to Worship:
O Worship the King
Psalm 86:1–12 Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. 2Preserve my life, for I am godly; save your servant, who trusts in you—you are my God. 3Be gracious to me, O Lord, for to you do I cry all the day. 4Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. 5For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you. 6Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; listen to my plea for grace. 7In the day of my trouble I call upon you, for you answer me. 8There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours. 9All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name. 10For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God. 11Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name. 12I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever.

Scripture for Meditation:
Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.
Hebrews 13:5–6 Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” 6So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”
Psalm 56:9–11 Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call. This I know, that God is for me. 10In God, whose word I praise, in the Lord, whose word I praise, 11in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me?
Psalm 118:5–9 Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me free. 6The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? 7The Lord is on my side as my helper; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me. 8It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man. 9It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.
