1 Chronicles 20:8 ASV "These were born unto the giant in Gath; and they fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants."
David was young when he killed Goliath, the champion of the Philistines in battle. That was just the beginning, in the course of his reign as king of Israel, David and his men killed three other giants, who were sons and the brother of Goliath.
You too can defeat giants! Now, this is not about fighting with people on the streets, there are other kinds of giants in the world today, physical and spiritual. These giants could come against your health, your business, your job, your family, your education, etc. Sometimes they come as very huge challenges and heavy burdens that you seem unable to bear. At other times they stand in your way, trying to limit and restrain you. However these giants decide to show up, know that they are bread for you!
Never be afraid. If David was able to get his first victory over a giant as a youth, why should you be afraid? But understand that David did not fight in his own name, but in the name of Jehovah. And he said that God would deliver the giant into his hand, in order that men would know that there is a God in Israel. Victory is certain when we face all our giants in the name of Jesus and seek to glorify Him. Be conscious of who you are in Christ; greater is He that is in you! You're more than a conqueror! And at the mention of the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow! Hallelujah!
