– Faith and Trust. David had been protected before by the Lord. Verse 37 says, “The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” You have to stand on the fact that you have faced other giants, giant situations and something that should have killed you in your past and it didn’t because of God, who is your source. Stay connected to your power source and you’ll always have a conduit to victory.
– Confidence. The scripture tells us that David expected to win so he looked Goliath in the face and told him he would win. Mark 11:24 says we shall have whatsoever we say. We must ‘speak’ to our mountains or giants and tell them that we won’t be moved. We won’t be tempted to ‘act crazy’ or respond out of character because when you know the fight is fixed in your favor because of your faith, you walk in it and claim it as so.
– Humility. David declared that the battle was the Lord’s. Regardless of how daunting the situation appears you can speak victory because in your humanity you must allow your humility to show up and turn all power to the most powerful one that has ever lived, Jesus Christ. You don’t have the power to win but he has ALL POWER TO WIN. Take your situations to God with a humble spirit and let him know you are totally trusting him because he’s the only one in life who has never lost a battle. He truly guides victory’s hand and all glory and honor belong to him.
– Love. Verse 45 says, “45 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, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” David essentially was telling him, though you bring weapons against me, I bring the power of the Lord, which is love. Exhibiting the love of the Father in all situations will keep the peace and eliminate thoroughly unnecessary mess.
Take some time and read the story for yourself. Look at every situation you’re facing that is of giant sized proportion and know just like David, who was an army of one, you to may be alone, but you are backed by the ultimate Army of Three: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
