Christian Devotional – February 20, 2013

1 Chronicles 20:6-7–In still another battle, which took place at Gath, there was a huge man with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot, twenty-four in all. He also was descended from Rapha. When he taunted Israel, Jonathan son of Shimea, David’s brother, killed him.

Another big man from the Philistines came and began taunting Israel. Jonathan remembered his uncle David who fought Goliath, and he went out and killed this six-fingered, six-toed man for taunting the nation of Israel and her God. When we hear about the amazing things God does in the lives of others, do we realize that He can do these things in every circumstance? We can follow the examples of faith that we see in the lives of others.

Father, You are the same God now that You were when David and Jonathan fought battles for You. I will take courage from their example and stand up for You no matter what.
