Overcoming Goliath in our Lives
I Samuel 17:1-50
Goliath was Nine feet tall and fully armed he covered himself with protection all over him and was challenging the Israelites to fight with his for 40 days. stricly speaking there was no way that he could be defeated.
We may also be facing such situations in our lives. Satan and the problems may be challenging us saying that we aren’t going to win the battle.
The outward appearance of Golath may seems that you will not be able to win the battle. He may look like taller and stronger than us. But the good news is He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
The Bible says 1 Jn 5:4
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world-- our faith.
What is faith? Believing God is able to make something out of nothing. Hebrew 11:1
Can we believe God than the problem that is standing before us.
- He believed that God is the most powerful one. David says who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?”
- He believed that the Lord will rescue Him. The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.”
- 3. He believed the Name of God than the weapons. You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.
- 4. He believed that the battle belongs to God and he is just a vessel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that theLord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.”
The bible says Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell face down on the ground. If someone hits on the forehead he should fall back, but here we see he fell face down which I believe God pushed him on the floor.
God does not need amours to win the battle but a vessel ready to believe God is greater than anything in the world.
Therefore let us put aside the doubts, unbelief and murmuring and believer God for grater things.
May God Bless!
