Tough Job For The Tough – Part 3

Key Verse

“And the Philistine said to David, come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field” (1 Samuel 17:44).

Text — 1 Samuel 17:42-44


David had a formidable and boastful enemy to fight, but he had no reason to panic before him because he was not a weakling but a tough-minded child of God. He knew that he was not going to defeat Goliath with the arms of flesh but by the power of Jehovah. F. B. Meyer wrote, “Our God is Jehovah of hosts, who can summon unexpected reinforcements at any moment to aid His people. Believe that He is there between you and your difficulty, and what baffles you will flee before you, as clouds before the gale.” Truly, that was how the battle went. With a sling and stone, and an unshakable faith in God, he killed the seemingly unconquerable Goliath and the great army of the Philistines who relied on Goliath for victory fled away.

Friend, as you go through life, from youth, adult to old age, you will face battles. But how would you respond to them? Of course with faith. Your Goliath now may be your education, peer pressure or financial challenges. Pray, work hard and smart, and God will grant you good success.


He had no reason to panic before him


God will grant you good success.

Prayer for today

Lord, help me to overcome my Goliath.
