David looked at Goliath; he was huge, like a mountain. He did not know that God made human beings this big yet here he was; a 17 year old teenager facing this giant. He had no sword, he had no shield, all he had were his experiences based on how God had helped him kill the lion and the bear and then he had his sling and a stone.
He had been practising with his sling for a long time and it amazed him to know that the first time, he would use it on a human being was in a real war but he also knew that it was not the stone and the sling, it was the power of God that would work through him and kill this uncircumcised philistine.
As Goliath approached him, David let off his sling and the stone hit Goliath on the forehead and right before his eyes, the biggest giant he had ever seen fell down like a crumbling building in front of him. David knew it was not the stone; rather it was the power of God.
Psalm 44:3 (GWT) says: It was not with their swords that they took possession of the land. They did not gain victory with their own strength. It was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your presence [that did it], because You were pleased with them.
What is that Goliath you are facing at your job, business, marriage, health, finances? It is not your strength that will make you conquer; it is God's mighty power and favour! These are the things you should prioritise! EXPECT God to show up for you and He will.
