quickly

14 Sep

As Goliath moved closer to attack, David quickly ran out to meet him. 49 Reaching into his shepherd’s bag and taking out a stone, he hurled it with his sling and hit the Philistine in the forehead. The stone sank in, and Goliath stumbled and fell face down on the ground.” 1 Samuel 17:48-49

For the past two Sunday evenings I have spoken at St Mary’s church on Isaiah 40. The link to the talks is here, http://www.stmaryslondon.com/talkslist (but the second talk is not up yet).

My single point is that as we read, wash and absorb the word of God as worship we will run quickly even toward the Goliaths in our lives. And we can run quickly, without getting tired because we run by the Spirit’s power.

This is the promise of Isaiah’s 40th chapter as it closes,

“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
    They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
    They will walk and not faint.” NLT

God runs towards us and He desires we run by His power to others around us.

Run, quickly and in the Spirit’s power.
