Message Notes:

1 SAMUEL 17:1
The Philistines now mustered their army for battle...

1 SAMUEL 17:3
So the Philistines and Israelites faced each other on opposite hills, with the valley between them.

1 SAMUEL 17:4
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!

1 SAMUEL 17:11,16
11 When Saul and the Israelites heard this, they were terrified and deeply shaken...16 For forty days, every morning and evening, the Philistine champion strutted in front of the Israelite army.

1 SAMUEL 17:26

David asked the soldiers standing nearby, “What will a man get for killing this Philistine and ending his defiance of Israel? Who is this pagan Philistine anyway, that he is allowed to defy the armies of the living God?”

1 SAMUEL 17:28
28 But when David’s oldest brother, Eliab, heard David talking to the men, he was angry. “What are you doing around here anyway?” he demanded. “What about those few sheep you’re supposed to be taking care of? I know about your pride and deceit. You just want to see the battle!”

1 SAMUEL 17:32
“Don’t worry about this Philistine,” David told Saul. “I’ll go fight him!”

David Never Viewed Goliath as Giant

God Had Equipped Him To Be Giant Slayer

1 SAMUEL 17:45-47
45 David replied to the Philistine, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies—the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46 Today the Lord will conquer you, and I will kill you and cut off your head. And then I will give the dead bodies of your men to the birds and wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel! 47 And everyone assembled here will know that the Lord rescues his people, but not with sword and spear. This is the Lord’s battle, and he will give you to us!”

1 SAMUEL 18:7
This was their song: “Saul has killed his thousands, and David his ten thousands!”
