Against The Impossible


1 Samuel 17:32-40

The Story
Jesse sent David to check on his three elder brothers who were fighting in Saul's army. They had been gone at least 40 days (1 Samuel 17:16) and Jesse was worried. In those days, ordinary citizens would rally around the king when he called for volunteers to fight. David went as he was told.

When he arrived, he found the armies of Israel cowering in fear because of the taunts of Goliath. Even King Saul was too afraid to face the giant in battle.

David heard the giant blasphemed the Name of God and shamed the people of God.

David found himself face to face with the mighty big giant!

Lessons
The LORD God always trains His people by placing them in some difficult situations. In those difficult times, christians will learn to trust the LORD God and walk in the power of God, and not the power of the flesh.

Remember David against Goliath – God put him there to face the giant.
