David and Goliath: When Preparation Meets Opportunity

September 9, 2018

I Samuel 17
Is the lesson of David and Goliath really about fighting my giant enemies OR is it about fighting God’s enemies?

Is the lesson about achieving my best by beating my personal giants, OR is it a lesson about spiritual warfare for the kingdom of God?

What if the pebbles and slingshot are not to teach us to trust whatever limited resources we have, but to teach us to be so intentional about developing our spiritual strength and courageous faith, that when attacked spiritually, we can fight for the Lord and not retreat?

What if this story reflects God’s covenant, His enemies and our preparation rather than defeating the problems of life so we can have full potential and my best life now?
