Slaying Goliath (Lessons from David)

“Then Goliath, a Philistine champion from Gath, came out of the Philistine ranks to face the forces of Israel. He was over nine feet tall! I defy the armies of Israel today! Send me a man who will fight me!” …When Saul and the Israelites heard this, they were terrified and deeply shaken.”
1 Samuel 17:4, 10-11

1 Samuel 17 includes the well-known narration of Israel’s battle with the Philistines and specifically David’s victory over the Philistine champion Goliath who was over 9 feet tall and a formidable opponent being a seasoned warrior. He terrorized Israel for 40 days nonstop, instilling fear which paralyzed an entire army until David came to the camp and defeated him.
