The Real Giant

1 Samuel 17:32-40

The Story
David heard the threats and defiance of Goliath. He was determined to see him defeated.

When David expressed his intention, he was met with criticism (28) and doubt (33).

David moved towards Goliath; he was well prepared.
  • He knew that he would not die that day, since the LORD God had anointed him as the next king.
  • He knew that the LORD God was able to help him again, since He had helped him in the past.
  • He knew that victory was in the hand of the Almighty God, and not in the army, armor or armaments.
  • He knew that the LORD God was the only Giant he should fear, and not Goliath.
The LORD God always trains His people by placing them in some difficult situations. In those difficult times, they will learn to trust the LORD God and walk in the power of God, and not fear the giant of their lives.

Remember David against Goliath – he knew that the LORD God was the real Giant that he should fear.
