Epic: Stories from the past for today. "The Giant"
Read I Samuel 17
“Can we please stop making David the hero of the story? He tried really hard not to be. It was God all the way!” ~Asil Treblig
To slay our giants…
1. We need a spiritual perspective. (vs.24-26,36)
The world sees obstacles.
God sees opportunities.
2. We need a practical faith. (vs.32-37)
Rooted in personal experience.
Rooted in God, not man.
3. We need a humble attitude. (vs.46,47)
Focus on God’s glory, not our own.
Why do you want your giant slayed?
Remember a time when you faced a big giant in your life?
Did you conquer this giant right away, did it take a while, or are you still battling? What are/were your weapons?
How do we know when we cross the line from trusting God to trusting methods?
