1 Samuel 17:49 (NKJV)

Then David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone; and he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead, so that the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth.

When David faced Goliath, he was facing a man who stood much larger than any other man of that time. He was, for all intents and purposes, a giant.

There are varying estimates of how tall Goliath really was, ranging from just under 7 feet, to as big as 11 feet tall. While 11 feet is pretty unlikely, he was, without a doubt, a formidable foe who was wreaking havoc with the army of Israel.

David, on the other hand, was just a boy. VBS201317

He had not even finished growing yet. But his heart for God was big enough to give him the courage and strength to stand up to the very man who caused the entire Israeli army to cower in fear.


David proved to the entire nation of Israel that you don’t need to be large in stature to defeat your enemy. You just have to have a strong love for God and the heart to stand up and face your giant.

What or who is your giant today? Does your giant have you cowering in a corner or hiding from it, day after day?

Today is your day. It’s the day that you can rise up, in the Name of Jesus, and slay your giant, no matter how big it is.

Don’t let fear push you around any longer. Stand up, claim your victory and walk it out in faith.
