In the book of 1 Samuel, In Chapter 17 and Verses 38-40, it reads:
And Saul armed David with his armour, and he put an helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail.
And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go; for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him.
And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd’s bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine.
And Verse 49: And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.
And Verse 50: So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.
I have been looking at this post since September last year. I wanted to say something concerning this scripture that jumps out at me. David took five stones, but only used one. That’s the only thing that comes to me. That is speaking something to me and I don’t know exactly what. Is it that although David went out to battle, God fought the battle for him and so David didn’t even need all the ammunition he had? Is it that God provides us with an abundance, so much that we cant use it all? I haven’t figured it out.
