God did not reserve strength just for all the big and tall people. David had giant faith and a gigantic boldness on the inside, though he was not a large man. His own size didn’t hinder his purpose and nothing else should limit him either. (1 Samuel 16:6-7) When others see us, they think they see the extent of who we are but it is our inner qualities that can bear a huge fight and wage a winning war with a giant.
When people saw David coming, they were not afraid, horrified or rattled. They weren’t dismayed at all. On the other hand, Goliath’s size and his words terrified Saul and the Israelites…(1 Sam. 17:11) “for forty days the Philistine came forward every morning and evening and took his stand…whenever the Israelites saw the man, they all fled from him in great fear.”
They let size determine the magnitude in their minds. It was as if the war was already won by the size and presence of the problem rather than their capacity to handle it! Nothing is too hard for God in you. Take on David’s tough spirit as you take your stand against giants that want to rule your life and destroy your daily blessings.
David developed depth and dependability as he tended his father’s sheep. He had an assurance (a positive declaration intended to give confidence; a promise!!) that his brothers didn’t have. Jesse, his father, trusted and relied on him to protect what was theirs. David learned to survive by being aggressive with what tried to take him out. As he went toward the battle lines that were closing in, David knew the giant had to be taken down. When he heard the war cry, the warrior inside him rose up!
