How To Do The Impossible Everyday
The battle between David and Goliath is renown. The Bible
opens the story in a valley where two armies face and taunt
each other. Emerging from the encampment of the Philistines
is Goliath. He is nearly 15 feet tall, broad as a dump truck at
the shoulders. His shield and sword is to heavy for men to
handle, so they are drawn on a flat cart by a team of snorting
Goliath surveys the army of Israel and growls angrily. "Send
me a man who is your champion. Come, let us fight and I shall
kill you like a mangy dog!" Fear sank deeper into the hearts &
bodies of the Israeli soldiers. A huge shadow cast itself
across the valley floor, it appeared ominous and foreboding.
High on a ridge cresting the valley stood Goliath, Lord of
Chaos and Destruction. He towered like a skyscraper against
the sunlit sky, his frame blocking the powerful illuminating
No one stepped forward to accept the giant's dare. Seasoned,
hardened men of war cowered and wished for the bosoms of
their wives and children. Death was upon them and Goliath
was ready to drink blood. Suddenly a red haired boy, barely
weighing 90 pounds, bravely steps forward. He is a shepherd
boy of 9 or 10, and his only weapon is a crude slingshot
containing several smooth stones. The boy's name is David.
David advances into the valley beneath the giant shadow. "I
will face you, and the Lord God shall give me your head this
day", David says confidently. Goliath howls in laugher as do
all the soldiers. "What?! Do you send a boy dog to face me,
have you no champions", he growls? David responds, " I am
the Lord's Champion and this day shall I take thy head from
Goliath lifts his massive shield and sword off the cart, the
horses neigh wildly in fear.
Swinging the huge steel blade overhead, it slices the air with
sonic swiftness. The steel sounds like the cold whisper of
deaf as it slices the air. Goliath can easily chop a 10 foot tall
grizzly bear neatly in half with the powerful swing of his oak
tree sized arms. "This fool will be easy prey", Goliath thinks to
himself, as he salivates for the taste of warm blood. Running
across the valley floor with the speed of a cat, David loads his
sling shot skillfully. He chooses a small marble sized stone,
smooth, hard and round. As Goliath advanced down the
valley ridge, David arches his arms, his eyes locked on
Goliath's forehead. In a split second he prays "In the name of
the I AM that I AM I Conquer Goliath this day!"
The stone spins from the sling shot, propelled with the
accuracy of a laser. Within the blink of an eyelash, the flesh
between Goliath's eyes splits open, the stone burying itself in
the darkness of his brain. Deeper the stone goes, grinding
bone as it drills into the giants skull. A force surrounds the
stone, burying it with nuclear force. As Goliath prepares to
swing his blade through David's tiny body, he feels a sting
between his eyes. Suddenly his eyes loose focus, and he
freezes in motion. His vision dissolves like the picture on a TV
screen when it is turned off.
David scurries away from under the giant's shadow. Goliath's
last words are cut short as his brains blood pumps from the
hole between his eyes. The armies watched in terror and
amazement as Goliath staggers, then falls to his knees. "You
dog, he screams at David", and collapse dead on the ground.
This day, the character of a new King is forged on the
battlefield, the character of King David of Israel.
Life often faces us with challenges. Sometimes they
overwhelm you, and you don't feel capable of victory. The
story of David and Goliath reveals the power of faith in the
Spoken Word. David believed in what he said, he saw it in his
mind and it manifested before his eyes. Did David have
angelic assistance? How is it possible for a simple stone to
kill a giant? You may wish to ponder the questions I asked,
but you are going to miss the moral of the story.
First, all things are possible. It doesn't matter how big, tall or
fierce the challenge looks. While others around you declare
there are no answers, and that there is no way; faith can
cause you to see the victory before the fight starts. Faith
allows you to see the outcome before you begin. You know
that you know that you know, all things work together for the
good, and YOUR GOOD IS HAPPENING TO YOU NOW!
Jesus said, have faith the size of a tiny mustard seed,
and all things will be possible for you. So look at your
situation in a new way and say to your giants: "That ain't no
