Facing a Giant


Daily Bible Reading – 1 Samuel 17; Psalm 9; Matthew 2

Today’s Key Passage – 1 Samuel 17:1-50


In today’s key passage, we read the popular story of David and Goliath.  Most of us have likely read this story before or have at least heard of it.  It is the type of Bible story that we are often told as kids in Sunday school, and there are many lessons to be learned from it.  Today, I would like to focus on the practical aspects of this story that we can all use as we walk through our lives.  The Philistines had moved into Israel’s territory and set up camp, so King Saul put together an army to face off against them.  The two armies were each perched on opposing hills with a valley in between them.  At this time in history, armies wanted to avoid losing a lot of troops in a long, drawn out battle, so it was common for an army to pit their strongest soldier against the strongest soldier of the opposing army for a “winner-take-all” battle.  Out of the Philistine camp came a giant named Goliath.  He was big, he was powerful, he was armed with heavy weapons, and he wanted to fight one of the Israelites to settle the battle.  When King Saul and the Israelites saw Goliath, they were all filled with fear.  They did not know how they could possibly defeat this formidable foe.  For forty days, Goliath would come out of the Philistine camp and intimidate the Israelites, challenging them to send someone to oppose him, but none of the Israelites would dare go against him.  All of the Israelites, including Saul, were focused on their own self-preservation, so they were frozen in their fear and unable to move forward against their enemy.

One day David, a young shepherd who was tending his father’s flock was sent to the front lines to bring provisions and to get a report on the war.  As he arrived, he saw Goliath come out of the Philistine camp for his daily taunting of the Israelites.  Unlike the rest of the Israelites, David’s focus was not on his fear or on self-preservation.  His focus was on the glory of God.  He said, “Who is this unbeliever, that he should defy the armies of the living God?” (Vs. 26)  David was confident that God would defeat this enemy.  He knew that this giant was no match for the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings, so he decided to step up and face off against the giant.  Though the other Israelites did not believe David could defeat Goliath, David still made the lonely walk to face off against the giant.  David had the faith to know that while he could not defeat the giant alone, God was with him in the battle.  In the end, David defeated Goliath using only a slingshot and a single stone.

As we walk through our lives, every single one of us will face off against “giants”.  These “giants” might be people who oppose us.  They might be habitual sins that we have trouble standing up to.  They might be difficult circumstances, illnesses, or financial problems.  Whatever the case may be, these “giants” will be a very real threat to us just as Goliath was a very real threat to the Israelites.  When we face these giants, we have a choice to make.  We can choose to be paralyzed with fear like Saul and the Israelites, afraid to move forward against the “giant”, or we can choose to have faith in God to solve our problems like David.  We can choose to focus on our own self-preservation, or we can choose to focus on the glory of God.  With the right faith in God, we can trust that He will deliver us from our “giants”.  With the right faith in God, we can be sure that He will bring us victory in His own time.  With the right faith in God, there is nothing we cannot overcome.

Daily Bible Reading – 1 Samuel 15,16; 1 Chronicles 5; Matthew 1

Today’s Key Passage – 1 Samuel 15:34-16:13

Life is filled with disappointments.  We will be disappointed by our own actions, circumstances, or health conditions.  We will be disappointed by others.  There are so many things in this life that will disappoint us, and it can be very easy to let these disappointments get us so discouraged that we stop serving the Lord.  When things are not going the way we would like them to go, we can have a tendency to give up, but there is a time to accept the disappointments we have faced and move on to whatever God has planned for us next.  In today’s key passage, the prophet Samuel was disappointed.  He had anointed Saul as King of Israel, but because Saul chose not to follow God’s instructions, he had failed.  Samuel was in deep mourning over Saul’s failure, but through his pain God teaches us four lessons about moving on after a disappointment.

The first lesson we learn is that there is a time to stop mourning.  In Verse 1 we read, “The LORD said to Samuel, “How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way; I am sending you to Jesse of Bethlehem. I have chosen one of his sons to be king.”  Even though Samuel was disappointed about Saul’s failure, God knew that his mourning would never change the situation.  There is a time to stop grieving and realize that in spite of whatever disappointments we have faced, God is in control.

The second lesson we learn is that we must accept God’s will.  Samuel believed that Saul was going to be a good king when he anointed him, but God rejected Saul because of his own actions.  Samuel had to accept the fact that God had another plan for Israel and for him.  Many times, we tend to hold on to what we think God’s will should be for our lives, when in reality God might have an entirely different plan for us. No matter what we might think at the present time, God’s plan for us is always the best plan, even if it does not fit into our current way of thinking.

The third lesson we learn is that there will come a time when we must simply move on to the next thing God is calling us to do.  God’s plan was for Samuel to go to Bethlehem and anoint another king.  Although Samuel was afraid of what Saul would do if he heard about Samuel anointing another king, he still chose to obey God and go to Bethlehem.  When we finally stop mourning over a disappointment and accept God’s will for our lives, we will find we can move forward and do as God directs.

The final lesson we learn is that we have to follow God’s directions as we move forward.  When Samuel first saw Jesse’s son Eliab, he immediately assumed that this would be the new king.  It was not until he heard from God that he realized his mistake.  He had to listen for God’s guidance and God ultimately led him to David as the new king of Israel.  Following our disappointments, we need to spend time getting back in tune with God.

Moving on from disappointment can be a hard thing to do, but it is something we will all need to do in this life.  Fortunately, God provides us with a road map to follow on our journey.  As we read His Word daily, we can learn His tips for moving on, and we can ensure we are following Him.
