TOPIC: David And His Brothers (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 24 August 2022)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Chronicles 21, 2 Chronicles 22, 2 Chronicles 23, 1 Corinthians 15:50-58, 1 Corinthians 16:1-4, Proverbs 20:25-30, Proverbs 21:1-4

FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 17:26-32 (KJV)

26 And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?

27 And the people answered him after this manner, saying, So shall it be done to the man that killeth him.

28 And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the men, and Eliab’s anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither? and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride, and the naughtiness of thine heart; for thou art come down that thou mightest see the battle.

29 And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?

30 And he turned from him toward another and spake after the same manner: and the people answered him again after the former manner.

31 And when the words were heard which David spake, they rehearsed them before Saul: and he sent for him.

32 And David said to Saul, Let no man’s heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine.

MEMORY VERSE: “And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?” – 1 Samuel 17:26

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.

Pray about everything, worry about nothing!


MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:

David’s courage is a product of his character, and his character is a result of his closeness to God and submission to Him. David could face the bears, lions, and even Goliath he encountered in his life’s journey. David’s story is a good example of courage because he faced his problems bravely. He knew and had so much faith that God would help him. Even when his elder brother tried to discourage him when he went to the battlefield to give his brothers food, he didn’t allow it.

He stood up to his brother in a respectful manner and was surprised that the children of Israelites could not stand up to Goliath, who was insulting the name of the Lord most High.

That was the difference between David and his brothers. David had reverence for God and was very courageous. He didn’t allow any disrespect to God to happen anywhere he was because he had a relationship with God and knew Him intimately. But his brothers didn’t have any knowledge of how mighty He is and His ability to deliver a person from evil. That was why they were all afraid of Goliath. On the other hand, David was not afraid of Goliath and was able to kill him.

This is the difference between a born-again Christian and an unbeliever. A born-again Christian knows how powerful God is. He or she is a courageous person and has a close relationship with God. A born-again Christian is like David, courageous, strong, a person after God’s heart, etc. No situation can make a born-again Christian afraid or sad. A born-again Christian prospers in anything that he lays his hand on. Life is better for a born-again Christian because he has Jesus.



  1. I surrender my life back to You, O Lord, in the name of Jesus.
  2. O Lord, give me the spirit of courage, in the name of Jesus.
  3. I plug my life into the socket of divine favor, in the name of Jesus.


  1. Anything in my life, taking me back to my old life, catch fire, in the name of Jesus.
  2. O Lord, let Your mercy say no to judgment in my life, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Every Goliath troubling my life, your time is up, die, in the name of Jesus.
  4. I speak woe to every Goliath of backwardness disturbing my life, in the name of Jesus.
