Life is like Goliath the Giant

The story of David and Goliath in the Bible is true, it actually happened, and God didn’t sovereignly put it into the Bible just to tell kids in Sunday School. God put events and stories like this one to create a picture in our mind on how to live life.

The entire Israel army was shaking in their sandals whenever Goliath came out and challenged someone to fight him as a champion for Israel, winner take all. David didn’t hesitate and he was just a teenager who was a shepherd who was not in the army and had no experience in war. When you read the story his confidence, courage, and coolness is amazing, this kid was something.

So, our life is often like Goliath, big, ugly, formidable, intimidating, and we don’t know what to do about him. The answer is conquer it, solve it, fix it, or kill it, but for sure we don’t want it hovering over our shoulder casting a shadow on our life.

God is always arranging the events in our life in such a way as to promote growth in our character and growth in our faith in Him. When we grow to the point in our faith in God that David had then we will be over-comers that God can use to bring about change in our culture and in the world that we live in.
