Skinny, scrawny David. Bulky, brutish Goliath. What odds do you give David against his giant? Better odds, perhaps, than you give yourself against yours.
Your Goliath brings bills you cannot pay, grades you cannot make, people you cannot please, a career you cannot escape, a past you cannot shake, and a future you cannot face. You’ve seen your Goliath. The question is, is he all you see?
David sees the giant, mind you; he just sees God more so. Look carefully at his battle cry: “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel” (1 Samuel 17:45 NKJV). Rush your giant with a God-saturated soul. How long since you loaded your sling and took a swing at your giant?
