Saul replied, “You are not able to go out against this Philistine and fight him; you are only a young man, and he has been a warrior from his youth.”
But David said to Saul, “Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it. Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God. The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.”
David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands,
As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground.

Jesus in the wilderness

Jesus in the wilderness

Matthew 4:1-4
Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted there by the devil. For forty days and forty nights he fasted and became very hungry.
During that time the devil[a] came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become loaves of bread.”
But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say,
‘People do not live by bread alone,
    but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.

Proverbs 30:18-19 (MSG)
Three things amaze me, no, four things I’ll never understand- how an eagle flies so high in the sky….
Victory is mine cries the eagle!
Under my wings who will not find security?
In my lens whose heart shall escape my stare?
Will my prey that lies below ground not eventually come up to the surface?
Do the fish not quiver when they sense me in the current?
Will my talons remain unsharpened?
Even my enemies know me by my shadow.
I search the hearts of all….
And I will perch on the branches whose roots are firm. 
I will abide in their branches and they will abide in me.
What business do I have building a nest in the likes of bushes?
Where enemies will steal my young?!
The heights are my home, in times of storms I remain.
The heavens,shall be my eternal frontier.
I hope you shall do the same.
