Goliath was an unfair match
“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”
Goliath was an unfair match against the God of Israel (David)
By comparison this is like a tiny ant screaming defiance at an elephant. The ant (Goliath) is no match for the foot of the elephant (GOD) which can squash the ant easily.
Goliath was fighting the God of Israel. This is an unfair match. To think Goliath was defying the God of Creation, the Holy God of Israel. Goliath is no match against the Lord God of Israel.
Yet in Goliath’s mind he is shouting defiance at all the people of Israel and they are running in fear. Here is Goliath’s challenge to the people of Israel.
Choose one man to come down here and fight me! 9 “If he kills me, then we will be your slaves. But if I kill him, you will be our slaves! 10 I defy the armies of Israel today! Send me a man who will fight me!” 1 Samuel 17:8-10 NLT
The God of Israel is more powerful and greater than a big-mouth nine-feet-tall giant. It makes no sense to be cursing the God of Israel and even more so to think that you can fight HIM and win. The God of Israel will never be a slave to anyone. The God of Israel is eternally the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. HE is forever. HE is to be worshipped and praised. There is no foe too big for the Lord.
HE had delivered the Israelites out of slavery. HE brought them out of Egypt totally restored of health and wealth to enter into the Promised Rest. HE parted the Red Sea and brought plagues to release the Israelites so they could go worship God.
In the same manner, God is greater and bigger than your problem, health issue, financial issue, relationship struggle, employment problem or situation. Is sickness shouting “I want to defeat you and kill you?” Know that our God is greater than sickness and disease. HE is in the healing, restoration and deliverance business.
Usually it is your unbelief which holds you back from receiving all God has for you. Are you believing the words of Goliath which wants your sickness to kill you? Are you a slave already to your problem or circumstance?
Are you willing to receive the victory through the God of Israel Jesus Christ who defeated fear, sin and death? God’s Word is medicine to the soul. Greater is HE (the God of Israel – the elephant) who is in you than he (the ant – Goliath) who is screaming defiance against your Lord Jesus Christ and wants control of your life.
Speak out loud to your problem or situation as David did to Goliath (the ant).
45 David replied to the Philistine, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies-the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46 Today the Lord will conquer you, and I will kill you and cut off your head. And then I will give the dead bodies of your men to the birds and wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel!” 1 Samuel 17:45-46 NIV
