1 Samuel 17:4-7 (ncv)
The army of God was on one hill and the enemy was on another hill with a valley in between. For 40 days Goliath came out in the open and cursed God and ridiculed the Israeli army. The entire army of Israel was intimidated and scared.
ENTER DAVID! A kid, maybe still in his teens. A slingshot and 5 little rock’s; oh, and El Shaddai the Great God Almighty who can! His brothers were embarrassed that he showed up and tried to get him to leave. David’s answer was, “What have I now done? Is there not a cause?”
1 Samuel 17:29 (kjv)
Goliath came out again cursing, making fun of David, but “David replied to the Philistine, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies—… whom you have defied.”
1 Samuel 17:45 (nlt)
WHAM AND SHAZZAM! Goliath became a crumbling piece of lifeless human flesh.
So I have a question for you: Are you facing a Goliath in your life? It may be financial, health, emotional, marriage, children, addiction, spiritual. Maybe you’re scared. God has a “David” waiting for you!
“Listen to the Lord who created you, .… The one who formed you says, “DO NOT BE AFRAID, FOR I HAVE RANSOMED YOU! I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.” Isaiah 43:1-3 (nlt)
