“Focus on giants – you stumble; Focus on God – your giants tumble.” Max Lucado

I. Willing to go

II. Working at the task

III. Worried about what they found

IV. Winning the day

V. What happened to the Philistines?

And the Philistines came up yet again and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim. And when David inquired of the LORD, He said, “You shall not go up; go around to their rear, and come against them opposite the balsam trees. And when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, then rouse yourself, for then the LORD has gone out before you to strike down the army of the Philistines.” And David did as the LORD commanded him, and struck down the Philistines from Geba to Gezer.” II Samuel 5:22-25

Making It Personal

We have a message of Peace, Purpose and Provision

  • “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:8-10
  • How I view my “giants” is my decision. Will I use my perspective or God’s?
  • How can I help someone else with their “giants” this week?
  • What do I need to change?
  • What can I celebrate that God has already done?
