One day the Philistines and their Hero Goliath, got ready for war against Israel. Goliath was from the town of Gath and was over nine feet tall. When the Israelite soldiers saw Goliath, they were scared and ran off.
David asked some soldiers standing nearby, “What will a man get by killing this Philistine and stopping him from insulting our people? What does that worthless Philistine think he is? He’s making fun of the army of the living God!” Some soldiers overheard David talking, so they told Saul what David had said. Saul sent for David, and David came. “Your Majesty,” he said, “this Philistine shouldn’t turn us into cowards. I’ll go out and fight him myself!”
When Goliath saw that David was just a healthy, good-looking boy, he made fun of him. “Do you think I’m a dog?” Goliath asked.
David answered: You’ve come out to fight me with a sword and a spear and a dagger. But I’ve come to fight you in the name of the Lord All-Powerful. He is the God of Israel’s army, and you have insulted him too! Today the Lord will help me defeat you and The whole world will know that Israel has a real God. Everybody here will see that the Lord doesn’t need swords or spears to save his people. The Lord always wins his battles, and he will help us defeat you.
When Goliath started toward, David ran toward him. He put a rock in his sling and swung the sling around by its straps. When he let go of one strap, the rock flew out and hit Goliath on the forehead. It cracked his skull, and he fell facedown on the ground.
We don’t need any sword or spear to defeat our troubles, all we need is the Lord. The Lord will stand by his children and protect them, we should have faith that he will give us the victory. David was about fifteen years old, when he took on Goliath, the nine foot giant. For David, Goliath size didn’t scare him, due to his faith in the Lord. Which shows that our present problems may be huge and scary, just know that our God is greater and there’s nothing too difficult for Him. David knew the Lord would give him the victory. In fact, we all have the victory through Jesus Christ. God has never been defeat, and never will be. We receive that victory by praying to the Lord, and remaining in faith.
