The Lion, the Bear and the Giants-3

1 Samuel 17:34 “And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:”
1 Samuel 17:36 “Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.”

It is a picture of what God has destined you to be and where God is leading you to! Your lamb is your seed today that will become your harvest tomorrow.
Your lamb is all you can become, but is still at infancy or developmental stage. Your lamb is “Joseph, the future Prime Minister of Egypt in Portiphar’s house”.
One thing to note that David knew and guided jealously was his future. David was a young man who knew that seeds of greatness had been kept inside him. He knew the palace and the nation of Israel were embedded in the “lamb”.
David knew his attitude towards the lamb would determine God’s attitude towards his future. Friend, what is your attitude towards you own lamb?
The young man could have abandoned the lamb and ran for his dear life, which could have translated to abandoning God’s plan for his life. When Samuel came to anoint him King, his big brother Eliab jumped forward, but God made an interesting statement:
