There went out a champion from the camp of the Philistines, Goliath was his name, from Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span (About 9 feet 9 inches, or 3 meters). He had a helmet of bronze on his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail. Now the weight of the bronze coat was five thousand shekels....
He stood and called out to the ranks of Israel, “Why have you come out to line up for battle? Am not I the Philistine, and you the servants of Saul? Choose for yourselves a man and let him come down to me.
1 Samuel 17:4-5, 8-9
What is the most terrifying thing in your life? For some people could be a mid-term exam, health condition, relationship or a fear to something. We all go through very similar situations.
The root name of Goliath is "Gahl" which means captivity. How many of us have felt captives of our fears? We struggle and let those fears conquered our life and little by little drain us until we feel anxiety, depression, etc. Then we start carrying a heavy yoke. Something that trenches us. Thankfully we have a great promise from our Savior. Jesus tells us to come to him all those heavy lading. His yoke is easy.
Don't avoid the giant in your life. Face it, but not alone. Samuel provided David with an armor (1Sam), but God is giving you three divine things: 1) An armor; 2) Intervention 3)Eternal promises. Lets hold on to them and cross the Red Sea of our lives.
