Chasing Your Giants

Part 2 – Series based on the story of David & Goliath. See Part 1 HERE.


1 Samuel 17:40-53

Fear becomes a giant obstacle in our walk with God. David was facing his giant, but was fearless because he knew that The Lord was going to be with him. David became bold and wanted to confront his giant, but he trusted that God.


He looked David over and saw that he was little more than a boy, glowing with health and handsome, and he despised him.
(1 Samuel 17:42 NIV)

Goliath looked down at David and laughed at him Our giants (fears) laugh at us, when we let them control our life’s.

David said to the Philistine, “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. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord ’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.” (1 Samuel 17:45-47 NIV)

Goliath thought that he could get away with his proud attitude against the armies of the living God, but God gave David a super natural Boldness

-Super natural boldness (we should ask God to give us that kind of boldness)
-David ran to meet Goliath/ He ran after his giant
-In the name of The Lord, he went against the goliath
-trusted God

Why was David so BOLD?
Its not because he has the strength in himself to have victory over goliath, but because he trusted his God. God had delivered him MANY times out very difficult situations. David knew he could trust God COMPLETELY in this situation. God gave David courage!
