The leadership of King Saul was marked by fear of what others, such as Goliath, could do to him. David, in contrast, was confident in the saving power of God. He was therefore focused on what he could do to Goliath. What gives the church confidence in God like David had to take the offensive?
-Prayer, which both calms our fears and engenders our trust in God’s presence.
-The church’s support which both helps us when we are in need & challenges us when we stray.
-The guidance of scripture.
-The forgiveness of God in Christ.
-Confidence in the cross of Christ to save.
Before David faced Goliath he had to confront King Saul. King Saul took counsel of his fears and remained on the defensive against Goliath. He even tried to put David on the defensive by weighing him down with his protective armor. But neither David nor Israel could move forward with such a king. David first had to shed Saul’s armor, to refuse to be weighed down by his fear; then confront Goliath.
