BEHIND THE MUSIC
1 Samuel 17:1-58
Introduction: When we face fear, we truly find out who and whose we are. The courage to overcome fear is found in faith—something outside of ourselves—namely God.
Definition of Courage: The quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear.
“The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me
to eat up my flesh,
my enemies and foes,
they stumbled and fell.
Though an army may encamp against me,
my heart shall not fear;
though war may rise against me,
in this I will be confident.”
“Wait on the Lord;
be of good courage,
and He shall strengthen your heart;
wait, I say, on the Lord!” (Psalm 27:1-3, 14)
What Kind of Person Faces Giants Courageously?
A Common Person
- An Ordinary Person (1 Samuel 16:6-13)
- An Obedient Person (1 Samuel 17:17-22) (Psalm 84:10)
A Consecrated Person
- Those who are Related to Him (1 Samuel 17:45)
- Those who are Relying on Him (1 Samuel 17:37,46) (Psalm 18:1-3)
A Committed Person
- In Spite of the Obstacles (1 Samuel 17:4-11,32) (James 1:2-4)
- In Spite of the Opposition (1 Samuel 17:27-32) (2 Timothy 3:12)
- In Spite of the Opportunities (1 Samuel 17:17-26)
A Courageous Person
- Willing to Accept the Ridicule (1 Samuel 17:28,32-37)
- Willing to Accept the Risks (1 Samuel 17:38-47)
- Willing to Accept the Results (1 Samuel 17:48-51)
Application: The only way we can truly defeat the giants in our life is seeing them from God’s perspective.
Humanly speaking, the giant may be more than we can handle but from God’s perspective the giant is just a small insignificant obstacle keeping us from experiencing His best.
Bottom Line: Through the life of David, we find that God likes to show off through a surrendered life that fully trusts Him.
