How can you fight your own Giants explained with the Story of David (1 Samuel 17)

1 Samuel 17:4 And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.

Who are your Giants?

  • Giants can be financial, spiritual, health or physical challenges
  • It is part of God’s plan that you are tested
  • Faith that is not tested is not real faith

What happens when you face Giants?

  • Fear is often the first reaction
  • Fear encourages the opposition
  • If you have an intimate relationship with God you will not fear
  • God allows only so much challenges in your life which you can handle

What sort of mind-set had David?

  • David knew that the Giant had no covenant with God
  • David knew, that if an opponent is defying God, then God is greater and will fight on his behalf
  • David used words against the Giant as the Giant used words against him
  • David had plenty of alone time with God and this made is faith in him extremely strong
  • David knew- my God is much bigger than Giants

What lessons do we learn from David?

  • Giants will come into your life, so that your faith can grow
  • Do not give room to fear
  • Do not let the opponent set the rules of engagement (e.g. the Philistines determining a 1-to-1 battle)
  • If you walk with God, Giants will go down
