In 1 Samuel 17 a giant arose in the land, the Bible calls him "a champion."
His name was Goliath and he tormented the army of Israel day and night for forty days. In my own words he played "let's make a deal" with them. "Find a man to fight me and if he kills me, then the Philistines will be your servants...BUT if I kill him, Israel will be our servants!" It is easy to side with Israel's slow-fulness to the challenge, after all they had been freed from the bondage of Egypt and this man was a "champion giant" threatening to place them back in bondage.
BUT, there was a young man named David who kept sheep, he was also anointed king of Israel by Samuel. He had become annoyed by this "uncircumcised Philistine" and his continuous tormenting of God's army. And he'd decided to do something about it..and that he did!
Armed with five smooth stones, a sling, and the anointing of God, David defeated Goliath.
There is no longer one giant defying the land...there are many now. Giants of suicide, debt, homicide, homosexuality, adultery, abortion...and the list goes one.
Where are you David?! It is time for you to rise and take your place in the Kingdom of God...we are late! When David was told that he was too young, he submitted his resume as shepherd. He told them how he had fought a lion and bear to rescue a sheep. What's on your resume of life? The lions and bears that rose against you in your youth were for today, they weren't meant to be stories of your past.
David was questioned about his motives for wanting to fight Goliath, and he answered with a question..."Is there not a cause?" I admonish you today to look around your city, state, homes, this great country and find your "cause." Not for profit, name, or status...but for the building of our Fathers kingdom. What is in your hand David? Use it, because giants do die...and the bigger they are, the harder they fall!
