The story of David and Goliath is one of the most well-known accounts in the Bible. Any child who has attended Bible classes has no doubt heard this story of bravery in the face of great adversity. David, who was a young boy at the time, showed his courage and faith in God by standing up to the giant, Goliath, and, with just a sling and a small stone, defeated a foe so intimidating that all of the seasoned Israeli soldiers ran away in fear of him. When reading this account, it is amazing to consider how David showed so much faith in God at a time when it seemed that all odds were against him. One might wonder how David acquired this level of faith. Let’s consider a few things that David did prior to confronting the gigantic Goliath that we can use when facing our own challenges in life.

into a better perspective and, like David, gain the courage needed to succeed!It
is no wonder that God called David “a man after mine own heart” (Acts 13:22).May we live our lives with the level of faith and trust in God that David had
throughout his life, so that we can be Christians after God’s Own Heart as well!
