“The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion…, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” I Samuel 17:37. The Biblical account of David and Goliath describes a seemingly insignificant person whose confidence in God was greater than any of the powerful people around him.  When David volunteered to face the giant Goliath, King Saul said, “You are not able to go against this Philistine”. But David had faith in the Lord who had delivered him in the past.  If he had listened to the pessimism of Saul or the threats of Goliath, he would have done nothing.  Instead, he acted with courage because he trusted God. Courage will follow when faith takes the lead.
