Today your looking at the story of David. David was the youngest of his other siblings (8). 1 Samuel 17 tells a story of two groups that were rising to fight against each other the Philistines against Saul and the men of Israel. Each of the two groups was supposed to pick one men to fight against each other. The team of the Philistines picked the biggest giant they have. His name was Goliath.
GOLIATH: 1 Samuel 17: 5-7 KJV: 5 And he had an helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass. 6 And he had greaves of brass upon his legs, and a target of brass between his shoulders. 7 And the staff of his spear was like a weaver’s beam; and his spear’s head weighed six hundred shekels of iron: and one bearing a shield went before him. DAVID: 1 Samuel 17: 37-40KJV: 37 David said moreover, The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the Lord be with thee.38 And Saul armed David with his armour, and he put an helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail.39 And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go; for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him.40 And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd’s bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine.

What this story tells is that it doesn’t matter how big the trial in front of you is. God is the biggest. Don’t be afraid. David took only 5 smooth stones. As we can take these 5 stones as well: 1- God 2-Worship 3- Prayers 4- Fasting 5- Read your Bible. It came to pass that David stood up against Goliath when everybody fled when they saw Goliath. David knew in whom he had put his trust. When people tell you (his brothers were not glad about this decision they thought David was to young to fight) , you can’t tell them that with God on your side mmm everything but everything that is not from God has to fled. These 5 smooth stones are the must haves in our lives.
God is a must have. MUST HAVE!!!!!
God bless you..
