The Just Shall Live by His Faith (Habakkuk 2:4)

I am really asking every believer to be just and live by faith for we all aim for the last days.  David took his staff in his hand and he chose for himself five smooth stones from the brook and put them in a shepherd’s bag in a pouch which he had and his sling was in his hand.  He drew near to Goliath of Gath and the Philistine also drew near to David and the man who bore the shield went before him.  The Philistine looked and saw David; he scorned David for he was but a youth, ruddy and good-looking, and so it was when the Philistine arose to meet David, that David also hastened and ran to meet the Philistine.  Then David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone, and he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead and he fell on his face to the earth.  So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone which killed him.  But there was no sword in the hand of David (1 Samuel 17:40-50).  The proud Philistine met the wrath of God “For the wrath is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness”.

Undaunted, David with faith had declared that he came in the Name of the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel: “This day”,he cried, “the Lord will deliver you (Goliath) into my hand “ (verse 46).  His cool courage, in such enormous danger and with so many eyes upon him, was a measure of David’s greatness
