Fighting Goliath

Read 1 Samuel 17: 24-37 - David volunteers to fight Goliath

"The Lord who saved me from the claws and teeth of the lion and the bear will save me from this Philistine!"

Saul finally consented, "All right, go ahead," he said, "and may the Lord be with you!" ! Samuel 17:37 (TLB)


When David saw Goliath, he felt called to fight for the honor of God and God's people. But King Saul doubted him, and David watched as all of the other Israelites ran away in fear. These things could have discouraged young David or caused him to be afraid. But he fully trusted in the power of the Almighty and refused to let anything deter him from fighting Goliath.

We each have our own Goliath. It could be job loss, poor grades, an unhealthy relationship, a bad boss, or a pandemic. These struggles can seem insurmountable. They can cause panic and fear. But we can always have hope because God is with us, and like David, we can beat Goliath.

When Joseph Tosin, from Lagos, Nigeria, resigned from his job in 2015, he did not have a plan, and new jobs were hard to find. But he remembered David's example, and he told himself that God would help him too. In time, Joseph got a better job.

As the people of God, we can rise above any setback. We are not overcome by our challenges. No matter what we face, we can feel capable with the Almighty by our side.


Prayer: Almighty God, just as you helped David, help us to rise above the challenges set before us, in Jesus' name. Amen.
