Conquering the giant
1. Preparation
David was about to face Goliath. Goliath was blaspheming the name of God. David, however, was willing to take the challenge. Saul asked David, “who do you think you are? Goliath is a man of war.” when God created the heaven and the earth, He only said the word. When God created man and woman, He used His hands. God commisioned them to tend the garden. God created each of us then commisioned us to change the world.
1 Sam 17:34.
Preparation: positioning. God has been preparing us from birth. David has been learning to kill lions and bear from youth. We need to rely on God’s guidance.
When God called Moses, He asked what Moses had in hand. David had a sling. At the same time, David learnt to take off the armor.
James 1:2
2.) Perseverance
Doing something to achieve the goal.
David was the shepherd boy. It was a routine day of hearing: Baaaa! Not many new things. When lions and bears came, David gave his life to protect the sheep. No body saw David’s victory except God. Our character is formed by what we do and decide when no one is looking.
3.) Prevail
David came in the name of God but he had sling stones. David had to face Goliath and there were other giants.
It is always by God’s grace. There are always one giant after another.
4.) Perspective
We should not just say, “I won”. We should always say, “I am a winner.”
Very often, God doesn’t show us the whole perspective because God knows we will not dare to conquer the giant if we know the whole perspective.
