So much can be learned from this story; not just about a fight between two men. It represents two modes of thinking. The Goliath is always seen as bullying, scary and offensively large dark thoughts, while the thought of David represents humility and turning to God, knowing the battle is always His anyway. After refusing the armor of Saul, he was rewarded with the protection of God.
It reminds me of a horror film. We know it is just a movie but still get frightened. I Samuel 17: 37 reads “And David said, ‘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.’ And Saul said to David, ‘Go, and may the Lord be with you.'”
Today, I will practice turning to God first.
