There is one story from the Bible that won my heart,may be because I’ve always been a tiny wiry man.
It is about David and Goliath.
Did you know that when David faced
Goliath, he never called him a giant?
Other people did, but not David.
He didn’t brag on the enemy’s power.
He didn’t magnify the obstacle.
He did just the opposite.
He called him an “uncircumcised Philistine”.
Not only did he not acknowledge who Goliath was, or his strength, his power, his experience, he took it one step further and diminished him.
When he said, “He’s an uncircumcised Philistine,” he was saying, “This man
is not in covenant with my God.
He’s not in covenant with Jehovah.”
In other words, “He doesn’t have the favor on his life that’s on my life. I
know the favor of my God keeps my
enemies from being able to defeat
So when he went to face Goliath he
said, “This day, I will defeat you and
feed your head to the birds of the
How could David, a teenager practically half his size with no
military experience, go out with such
confidence and face Goliath, a skilled
warrior wearing a full set of armour?
It’s because he understood this
David is the one that said,“The favor of God keeps my enemies
from defeating me.”
