“For who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should taunt the armies of the living God” (1 Samuel 17:26).

For David, it is incomprehensible that an assessment of any battle, or any other circumstance in life, would be done apart from the providence of the one true living God. David offers a theological reality that shapes his view and interpretation of all things; that ours is a present and active God; engaged in the affairs of his people. If we really believe God is alive then we must live as if it is so.
