“So the Philistine said to David, Am I a dog, that you come to me with sticks? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. Then David said to the Philistine, You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts…” I Samuel 17:43 & 45, NKJV.
Goliath came to Israel and talked to them like they were scum. He stood 9 feet tall before David and referred to him as a stick. He told them he would kill him and give his flesh to the birds. Goliath cursed David by his gods, talking to David and Israel as if they were nothing.
We all have Goliath’s. Is yours standing before you and talking to you the same way? It is standing before saying nothing will change for your life. You won’t make it this time. God isn’t able to deliver you, and the devil is mocking your God.
Talk is cheap, so give it no place in your life. It is about what the end will be, and the devil is no match for your God. Goliath talked much but ended up doing little. David slew him with a slingshot and a stone, showing how mighty our God is. The Great I AM doesn’t need much, just a seed of faith you put in Him. Just as the small stone in David’s hands, you will overcome your Goliath with that small seed of faith in yours.
Now take your faith and slay your giant!
Prayer: Father, I praise You this morning. You are my mighty God, and I will have what You have promised me. Talk is cheap, and my Goliath will fall! I put my seed of faith in You. Lead me, Holy Spirit. Jesus is greater in me than he that is in the world, and with You, I will be who You called me to be and accomplish everything You have told me to do. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
